A Hedge of Protection

“A Hedge of Protection”

Mixed Media Painting

The text:  I call upon all the positive agents of good to encircle me with a ring of love and protection.

(Note:  the redundancies are for added protection…….)

  1. This one really speaks to me, Lori. Part of it is the shade of blue. The other is that I, too, am feeling vulnerable. I’m enclosed in a crystal crusted bubble of love.

    I am really loving your journal. It is a wonderful project that I’ve considered but haven’t pursued.

    1. Thanks, Sally. You should do it. True, it’s not as spontaneous as writing, and certainly messier, but the art has as much power, maybe more, than writing — but then, I’m an image-oriented person so I’m biased.

  2. This is fabulous Lori. Personally I find I am able to express so much more through my drawings. I find I can make statements that get stuck in my throat or sound too trite when I put them into words. I am sure this wonderful blue shield will help you. I would work on this theme regularly given everything.

    1. Thanks, Heather. I need one of the Turkish blue glass evil eye deflectors that Carol has photographed and posted on her blog. How cool.

  3. Your hedge is utterly gorgeous, like a summer sky in its limitlessness. If perhaps you see a flash of green here and there, don’t worry, that is where my “Golden Bubble of Protection’ is melding with your blue.

    I gift everyone who touches my life with their own bubble and it protects you against a great number of things.


    1. Well, thank you, Gwen. I need all the help I can get! And I love gold!

  4. That’s great Lori. It reminds of a spiritual exercise for protection which is draw an imaginary blue cloak around you. Good luck with it and I hope you feel stronger inside your blue hedge – once again – fabulous colours. What kind of paint do you use? I really admire the radiant hues you get.

    1. Thank you, Suzanne. For the background I used a blend of ultramarine blue and metallic silver acrylic paint applied in a thick impasto. The writing was done with a metallic silver Sharpie pen. The figure was drawn with watercolor pencils, then blended with water, on a separate piece of paper. I then cut out and pasted the figure onto the background. I’m glad you like it. 🙂

  5. your lovely blue hedge of protection looks like a soul cape in your picture. Will work well, no doubt.
