Spirals and Swirls

She is a lady of peace
a watcher
a holder of sacred space


My palette had left over watercolors from the last painting.

I wanted to play,
sprayed water on the colors to bring them to live, ready to use.

Painted the above swirly spiraling lines letting colors blend into one another. 
After it dried i noticed a subtle face:

Much texture appears in the paper of this photograph, more than the scanner picks up in the first photo.

That is how she came to life, 
I found her in the swirls of color. 


  1. I love the idea of bringing he colours to life with water and then finding a beautiful face in them. Hugs, Valerie

  2. These spirals and swirls are dancing so light - amazing experiment! The face brings them to earth.

  3. How magical! She had been waiting to be found, and she is beautiful. I love all the soft, subtle colors and how they blend. Gorgeous!

  4. Love these, for I am of the Comfort Spiral! <3

  5. she's lovely. love the paleness of the swirls too

  6. Bonjour chère amie,

    J'aime cette tentative artistique qui a abouti à une très jolie peinture. La douceur des couleurs contribue à ce joli visage du charme envoûtant.

    Gros bisous ❀

  7. She is beautiful with her eyes seeing at something in the distance.

  8. It's fascinating how artworks have a life of their own and birth themselves.

    Enjoy your evening Tammie!

  9. She is lovely, and so is the background.

  10. Magic how the image appeared from the swirls. Lovely soft colours. The hair style blends with the background

  11. Ha Tammie,
    This beautiful lady of peace, a nice soft facial expression

    Ha Tammie,

  12. A soft swirly, magical creature!

  13. I like the idea of a creation coming to life this way, not expected and not a bad thing. love the swirls.

    have a lovely day.
