Harmonized Equanimity


Textured layers of purple and turquoise greens with soft lilac greys.

Part of the ‘Crystallized Brahmavihara Series’ in this series of paintings I am working with Shambhala Meditation, Reiki and Crystal energies. Working with these practices before painting has been immensely insightful and deeply inspiring.

The brahmavihāras are a series of four Buddhist virtues and the meditation practices made to cultivate them. The Brahma-viharas are: Loving-kindness or benevolence, Compassion, Empathetic joy and Equanimity.

The crystal energies used in this piece was Rainbow Fluorite. Fluorite balances the bodily energies and promotes inner harmony and equilibrium. It is a highly protective and stabilizing stone, useful for grounding and harmonizing spiritual energy. Equanimity: mental or emotional balance.

Each of my pieces comes with a signed Certificate Of Authenticity

Liz McDonough

I am a Self-taught artist born in the UK. Lived in Manchester & Mauritius during my career, now located in Warrington. Interested in the intangible, that which we feel but cannot translate. My paintings begin with feelings derived from alternative perspectives bordering on a spiritual level. Inspirations for me are found within the colours of nature; such as the iridescence of a paua shell or reflected light underwater. Working the contrasts of depth, texture & luminosity and a slightly obsessive edge, intricacy & layering. I choose to take you on a journey of the cosmos around me and the discovery of art being a spiritual experience. I have had many life changing and profound moments; one being a vision quest in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, California. Camping alone in the wilderness, no food, only water for four days & nights I enjoy meditation & music to help inspire my work. Being creative is something within me as an artist. It means everything to me as it is my own unique alternative perspective, but keeping myself creating takes motivation. I manage to stay motivated and inspired to create by meditating. Meditation helps me to focus on just me, bringing energy inwards instead of it dissipating outwards. It enables ideas to form, giving me inner confidence and clarity to just ‘do’ my work. The most productive way I create is by just letting go and NOT trying to create a piece of art. Just immersing myself in the action, the colour, the feeling of being in that moment and experiencing ‘doing’ rather than thinking what it looks like or whether anyone else will find it appealing.
