Lakhovsky coil

I listened to the most interesting video yesterday from Project Camelot.
Kerry was interviewing Maria Wheatley speaking about the Lakhovsky coil. 
Not to much to be found on the net but I did find out you can make one with a #10 copper wire. This is normal house electrical wiring that is insulated.
I will not go into the explanations here, you can look it up if your interested. 

Today was a painting day, a bit unusual for me, my son's are opening up a gaming store and asked me to paint a dragon on the floor, it was a bit painful.....bending over all day.

So I just stopped and picked up the #10 just large enough to fit around my waist plus 2 inches overlap.  Got out to check my mail and knew it was going to be a hard night, left side, hip and knee were screaming at me. 
I though what the heck and put the Lakhovsky coil on. 
What a wonderful surprise, a couple moments later I felt the pain just melting away! I laughed, I cried! Unbelievable!

I am currently busy with so many commissions, I love it. This is Old Havana Night for a Preparatory School in Texas.
This is my concept, time to add some color,
My usual blocking in or layering color and then I move onto the oils
This time when I moved to the oils... I could not do my usual stone flooring because my female dancer was not showing up like I wanted her to....
I changed the stones, you can still see some of the senna showing through. This really softened up the painting, a dreamy night!
Click on any picture to see it larger.
Hope you enjoyed following along.
Next I am off the Santorini for a commission :)
Maybe...... then I can get back to more boats for the boating fans!

Re-connection after time off. Well not really time off .....just less painting. I made a major move studio and all last year, then just a couple of months ago I moved my mother in to care for her.
It has been a lot of work getting her house ready to sell, my sons and grandsons pitched in to help keep things manageable for me.
I did complete a commission, for a lovely lady in Canada, here they are:

I am currently working on 2 more commissions: one countryside with a barn and the other I can not introduce yet it is for a school in Houston, they will get the opportunity to introduce it first ;) Please visit my new website here: rebeccabeal

What does the inside of your mental home look like now? Is it gracious, full of light, comfortable, and spacious, or is it a “carpenter’s dream,” begging to be renovated?

Find Me Here

I wanted to publish the completion of this work that was for my house.
I will have some prints available.
I am heading quickly towards 60 years old, the body tells me so.
The mind....well the mind is as young as it ever was. A little wiser maybe. I remember thinking how old is 50!  When your in your 20's & 30's you never thought you'd get there, just stay young.
I suppose its the "experience" of this place, this planet we call Earth,. Home.,.
Did we ever think.....what's up here, we have to pay to live on a planet were born on, then continue to work for a system that rarely gives back. Work hard all your life to enjoy a few years of freedom before you die. I have to ask WHY DID WE COME HERE?
Suppose we had some things we wanted to learn.  Some gifts we wanted to share.  Some experiences we wanted to add to our repertoire.

I simply love to paint the blues and whites of Santorini Greece
Enjoy the cool color, Warm Breeze and sunshine!


Here are a couple of completed paintings I need to post. Eat, Sleep, Boat, Repeat
Solitude is not the same as loneliness. Solitude is a solitary boat floating in a sea of possible companions.

I almost forgot to publish the finish of VENICE

Saturday, January 6, 2018

I cannot believe it has been since May of last year that I have added any content to my blog. As I look back I can see how completely absorbed and busy I have been. Painting only a little, making some jewelry and doing a lot of moving!
My new place, the painting was not finished at the time....

Now I am working on a Venice painting, I get so absorbed remembering my visit there, all the emotions and sparkle of the city come back to me.
This is the original sketch.
As you can see, since it has been a while, my perspective is way off!
Though working slowly while unpacking, helping my family and seeing my boys :) I have managed to correct that.  The lighting is pretty bad here but you get the idea, I already see some changes I want to make again :)
For those of you who do not know, I love to work with acrylics first, I tend to design through the whole process and changing is so easy with them because they dry so quickly, also it allows me to add multiple layers. Once I move on to my oils it really changes and adds additional depth to the work.
Thank you for stopping by, hugs R
I will let you know when I finish it :)

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain

"Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone."

Thank you for all your wishes while my mother was in the hospital with pneumonia.
It has slowed down the painting process, that is now ready to burst out again.
Here are the next paintings I will be working on.  These are the drawings (with a little under painting).
I will continue to show you the process as each come into their own completion.

Thanks for following along :)
