Personally, for me this is a time for thanks, giving, sharing, believing, and hoping for an incredible New Year leading to better seasons. I hope new windows open for all of us, promising fresh new “eyes” for seeing the light, experiencing the darkness, and manifesting all our colors in our rainbows that surround us. – Helen Chamberlain

A Thank You from Martha

Hello Light & Darkness Friends,

Thank you very much for attending our Light and Darkness Veil Painting course [November 12th, 2021] with Helen and me last weekend in Nashville. We are thrilled at your interest in furthering the work of Liane Collot d’Herbois in Nashville. We are proud of each and every one of you in the execution of painting with difficult concepts, and for taking up this important meditative approach in connecting to the Spiritual World through ART – through Light, Color, and Darkness.

We are looking forward to doing another workshop soon, so practice your veil painting skills that you just learned in the meantime, making way for ascending to the next level ; When you have any questions or concerns, call Helen. Just kidding. You can call me anytime, too. Please leave a message and I will get back to you asap. Sometimes I won’t answer my phone if I don’t recognize the number. However, now that you are all entered into my computer address book, your names will come up on my phone, too. Ah, the benefit of working on compatible Apple systems is sometimes a delight.

While giving out thank yous, I’d like to thank Barbara Bittles for her ongoing and generous support of Helen and me, and the work of Liane Collot d’Herbois. Thank you for hosting both Deanna and me, and for your generous scholarship support.

Our time was short yet magical! The stag graced us at the end. Deer medicine is all about gentleness, unconditional love, and kindness.Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you anytime.

Loving Martha

Thinking and Feeling

Hello to All, and Welcome!

I am happy to announce my website for Helen Chamberlain Art. It’s well underway but there are still a few things yet to be included such as a question and answer area, additional galleries, and a discussion area. Meanwhile, the two galleries featured thus far are the Spiritual Gallery, and the Angelic and Elemental Realm Gallery.

How it All Began

As a younger artist I started a once-a-week watercolor class. This artistic endeavor allowed my soul, smothered by materialism to start to “breathe” again while learning all the basic steps, which shortly led to exhibitions followed by occasional awards.

Still, there was something missing. The question I had was, “Why color?”  What is it that draws one to try to understand the healing aspects of light, darkness, and color? My initial works followed that pursuit, yet they seemed to lack the coherency I sought. They were more about the expressions of feeling life than anything else.

Many more questions began to surface in the early 1990s while studying art in the Netherlands, and this is where I found the sense of coherency I was searching for.  I simply developed and employed the thinking aspects of veil painting as opposed to relying on the feeling aspects.

The most beautiful thing we can experience
is the mysterious
It is the source of all true art and science

~ Albert Einstein

A searching student or developing artist faces the mystery of what happens to our paintings (there are no accidents as a wise person once stated). True art needs to be presented and true science needs to include the forces from the spiritual world. If not, both art and science deteriorate and truth is misrepresented.

“As the dim mists dissolve” in viewing a veil painting, coherency through the correct process manifests, where color and images appear.

On with the Show

I am also pleased to announce my upcoming art show, September 18, 2021 from 1 to 4pm, at St. Basil’s Parish, 355 Tusculum Road, Nashville, TN. The 19 original veil paintings from the Spiritual Gallery will be on display. I’ll also be giving a talk and answering questions at around 2:30pm. There will also be refreshments. This event is free to all.

I look forward to seeing everyone. More on this event and a flyer for download can be found here. Many thanks to John Plummer for making this event possible, and to Barbara Bittles, Martha Loving Orgain, Linda Cooper, and Niles Franco for all their input and assistance.

Lastly, both the Spiritual Gallery, and the Angelic and Elemental Realm Gallery are now e-commerce enabled, and to commemorate my website and and the upcoming art show the coupon code “HCA1231” can be applied through the end 2021 to all purchased items for a 25% discount.
