Over the summer I was lucky to take a 2-week training course with Robert Peng, an internationally renown Qigong Teacher and Healer. It was intense and energizing all at once. I am adding this work to my Reiki Master work and have been treating people for various health concerns since my return.
So, I decided that on one of the blank walls in my treatment room, I wanted to hang a Yin-Yang. Any of you know how about Chinese healing would understand the meaning, but I won't go into it on this forum.
So I made three pieces so far and I am trying to figure out what color to make it so that I can make one that is 24" X 24" to hang in my treatment room. So far I like the ones that I have made but none of them are the color that I will use on the larger piece.
12" X 12"
Someone gave me this red, laser-cut, tissue paper a while back and I believe it is to protect your home in Chinese culture. So, I figured this was a good place to use it. I also collaged book pages and paper bits. Then I painted it various shades of blue. I hand-cut a stencil and painted the Yin-Yang in metallic champagne. Finally, I gave it a wash of quinacridone nickel azo gold and added a few finishing touches.
Here's the close up...
So far I have made three but none are the color I will use in you treatment room. But as I practice, I am getting different results and I like the whole process.
8" X 8"
I used some old paper towel that I had cleaned up a spill with for the turquoise.
The doilies were from some restaurant dessert plate. I would never go and buy doilies. I'm not very girlie.
6" X 6"
I included some papers that I rusted last year in the base collage on this piece.
So, thank you for stopping by, especially since it has been so long since I last posted. I would love to read your comments. Wishing you good health and a lot of Qi. (pronounced chee and meaning life force energy)
