Sirius, the Dogs Days and cats

Every year between the end of July and the end of August, the star Sirius in right in line with our sun and this period is called the Dogs Days. This is an ironic name, as one of the races that lives on Sirius is a cat race! (who would have thought! :-) )
This year I decided to take advantage of this alignment by connecting with the cat energy from Sirius. Cats are originally from Sirius and then came on earth in ancient Egypt. The cat goddess Bastet was worshiped for over 4000 years!

To call on the original spirit of cats is calling on "Knor".
Knor is pronounced with a "k" as in "kitchen".
I chose to create a series of dreamy cat portraits. All portraits are painted with brushes in Photoshop and combine a watercolor technique with tiny hairs for the fur.

Of course painting is a great way to connect on a deeper level with the energies and the result was that there was more knor energy in my life.
I learned about a new healing technique called Sirius Energy Method.
You can find a link here, with a link to an English language pdf file.

An other effect is an increase in connections. Cats have their own networks and when you tap into the knor energy, they are happy to hook you up with people, places or animals that will enrich your life. It is of course dominated by the famous playfulness that cats have, so there is no linear or causal method to this.
Expect the knor energy to softly touch your project with a sweet paw, and everything will look different!
I have once done it to find a house and that also worked in a delightful way.
The cats guided me to houses where people had cats and if they did not have a place to stay themselves, it turned out they knew the right people to help me.

So I encourage anyone to try this and have fun with it! :-)
You don't need to wait for the Dogs Days to do this.

Meantime you can visit all cat paintings in this series on

Australia Nazi Style Border Experiments

That Australia is now a rogue state is widely know, but new are the Nazi style border "security" measures that would make even Mengele mouth water. Hence a

Travel alert for Australia

Earlier this year I visited Australia and when I was actually LEAVING the country, I was suddenly grabbed at the airport, thrown in a cage, locked up and then I felt all sorts of strange sensations in my body, like a weird tingling. I started to scream that I wanted to be let out and after a few minutes the door was finally opened and the "security" officer said that this was "facial recognition technology".
Now I did a search on this and nowhere does it say that it is an invasive technology that can actually be felt. On the contrary, there are a lot of warnings around this technology that it can be done without you even knowing!
This was the official reaction I got (after about fifteen emails or so):

"I can confirm that the Australian Border Force uses facial recognition technology and, at the time of your departure, Brisbane Airport was trialing this technology in an outwards SmartGate. The SmartGates have since been rolled out at all Australian International Airports enabling departing travelers to self-process through outwards passport control."

In order words: it is some dark experiment that has no justification and of which the health effects have probably not even been researched. I did not give permission to participate in this experiment and also have demanded that my data be removed from their files.
Needless to say, I have not been successful in this and I am also still waiting for an apology for this rude behavior, that in my view (due to it's invasive nature) equals rape.
If you do not need to go to Australia, my advice would be: don't. It's not worth it.

Still Life - what exactly is "still"?

The concept of still life

Still life is usually seen as a moment of beauty frozen in time. The topics that are captured involve food, flowers and vases.
But does it have to be that way? In a sense, a portrait is also a still life.
Seen from the point of view of the meditator, there is an absence of thoughts, an increase in awareness, nothingness or maybe the full vibrancy of life.
I like to look at it from that point, and see a so called "Still Life" as an abundance in aliveness, shown as peace.

The art

So how would that translate in actual visual imagery?
In my world that means playing with glass (the reflections and transparency refer to the meditative aspect as mentioned earlier) as well as metals.
And this is what that would look like:

You can see how the metallic effects create a liveliness. From here I was playing some more:

As you can see, I kept the color palette similar, to create a unity and add the three pieces together on one wall ...

Romance and Rain in Art

Bridge to Eternity - art by Anne Vis

Modern Art

Lately I have been inspired by the trend of paintings with a couple walking in the rain under an umbrella ... very cozy and romantic of course. I've seen quite a variety of paintings, oftentimes with leaves in all colors of the rainbow, bright and eye-catching. Another variety is the bright red umbrella in an otherwise black and white setting. So as you can see, a wild array of options for the creative and romantic soul!
I first started with this painting, in which the water and it's reflections formed a center part:

At the end of the rainbow - art by Anne Vis

Another aspect is the rainbow ... when the couple crosses the bridge, they will find "the pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow ...
The painting on top of this post is a variety, which came about after I found I wanted to change the entire color setting and make it a painting that would also be great for a bedroom. Warm red and orange as well as peach colors create a soothing atmosphere and with a romantic subject, the painting will create the right atmosphere for a great night of passion.
Both these paintings have been created from a 3D computer render.

Vintage Art

And then I came across this vintage painting by Russian artist Ivan Shishkin, which is in the public domain. It is originally in landscape size.

Rain in an oak forest

It is so nice to find that this theme has been around for so long! So I created my own version of this painting, changing the light and adding some more color and sunlight, turning the summer into fall ... I also added a deer and some mushrooms, to brighten up the atmosphere.
Of course there is no place for a hunter in a romantic painting, so I edited him out :-)
This is the end result, hope you like it:

Portrait Paintings

A girl ... - art by Anne Vis
A Girl ...
In the course of the years once in a while the topic of portraits comes up. I am one of those artists who is all over the place and it seems to be very difficult for my creativity to stick to one topic for a while.
A couple of years ago I redid a vintage painting (blogpost), creating a new lady from an existing portrait.
Portrait of a Lady - art by Anne Vis
Portrait of a Lady

This time I have a "fresh" girl, as you can see in the top image, created from scratch. I am still working on finding the right brushes in Photoshop, but you can see it is a difference with the vintage girl. This is self-taught, so you can judge for yourself how I am doing so far :-)
Every portrait has an expression and whereas the vintage lady looks happy, the young "new girl" has a bit of a naughty look in her eyes ...

So I wonder what you make of this one (my very latest): Horses ... - art by Anne Vis
Horses ...

I find it interesting how different each horse is ... in that respect there is a similarity in painting humans and animals ...

A room with a view

An Ocean Away ... - art by Anne Vis
An Ocean Away ...
One of the advantages of art is that it gives you a view of a different reality. I was lately inspired by a French window shutter and decided to create a "room with a view". After all, there is a relationship between the window (eye) through which we are looking at the world and how we perceive what may or may not be "reality".
I did not set out to create a series of "rooms with a view", but apparently that is what happened and I would like to showcase several of them here, as it is nice to see them together and see how by changing just a few elements, the entire atmosphere changes. Thus you can also change your interior design and it will affect how you feel and how you look out of your "window". Fascinating, isn't it?

Of course you can also use these paintings as sort of a "trompe l'oeil" ...

Fukushima - you can't escape

Ok, So a couple of years ago I wrote a post about Fukushima and how the israelis have a motive to destroy Japan.
I really wonder why the media never bothered to look into the so called "earthquake" in Fukushima and just bought into the stories of the governments. Maybe blackmail?
Anyway, please read what I wrote in my previous post about Fukushima. As you can see in this YouTube movie, I am not the only one who thinks this might be a clear case of a nuclear attack:

Currently it becomes more difficult to keep the truth concealed and we will for sure hear more about this.
That is, if the current adventures of moving the rods in Fukushima, will not eradicate humanity ...
