Foliage Still Life in Blue and Purple

My starting point was a photograph of a moody and decorative collage made on a dark winter's day out of cut and torn fragments from another piece along with crystalline watercolour to bring out the forms. Multiplying, transforming and layering the image I made variations on my iPad. The original collage is the first image followed by three of my favourites from the sequence.

Ratnadakini, Sky Dancer of Earth and Jewels

 Next in the series of small circular paintings of the five wisdom dakinis. Ratnadakini is accompanied by Ratnasambhava's horses (they support his lotus throne) and dragons. For me dragons are wisdom beings akin to Nagas and also symbolise the freeing of the subtle energies of the body.
