Abiding with contemplative Awakening Art moves us far beyond looking at interesting or pretty pictures.
Awakening Art moves us beyond the narrow confines of ego limitations. It opens the vast vistas within the infinite center of our being. Contemplative art offers an invitation: feel Home, alive as Love, aware as and in resonance as the rhythms of Light, the beauty of harmony.
The paintings did not land upon the canvas to please or placate anyone, or with a thought of an aim or an audience. They arose spontaneously from a heart of love, and love’s devotion, brilliantly clear in Presence. The colors and formations cascade from open vulnerability—they alight from the state of being wherein there is no beginning and no end.
The contemplative art offers many gifts for you. Seeing and feeling beauty uplifts us ever closer to the feeling of the beauty of holiness, the breathtaking beauty of our Creator. Awakening the remembrance of the earlier Light beauty cocoons us, as it elevates us; it gently protects-soothes us while it liberates us.
The contemplative art offers you... beckons you... to rest in the immortal nectar of nurture that fortifies you. This soft abiding opens pathways of remembrance of our Eternal Home.
To remember the Eternal Love of our Original Home, is to remember our True Essence.
As you contemplate the Awakening Art, we welcome you to invoke a soft prayer: to directly feel God; to gently and profoundly feel Love; and to sacredly and happily know your unique bejeweled, diamond value.
As you abide with these paintings, your observation offers a gift to these art forms and further animates their expression of uplifting others in our world.
The Genesis of the Mother Ahavah Art Gallery
formal art training, and with no thinking or planning, the book and art
author and artist (Dr. Ann Marie Nielsen), emanates, swirls and twirls
out these heart warming and evocative contemplative art paintings.
delicate immensity of Mother God Love, one with Father God Love,
shimmers from her heart, through her hands, to the paper and canvas.
painting or drawing generally completes in four to eighteen minutes—on
average about nine minutes. Each thirty seconds to a minute a new layer
emerges of forms, colors, and wisdom principles known in consciousness,
coming alive on canvas.
It’s as if the formless Eternal Love,
expresses as shapes and colors, forms and images, that spark in us, the
remembrance of Home.
The first sketches/paintings occurred
spontaneously in the fall of 2016. Feeling an immensity of divine
devotion, and worshipful prayer, Ahavah, Dr. Ann Marie Nielsen felt an
impulse to express on paper in art forms. She rummaged around and
discovered a few pieces of chalk. Then she dug out a few odd, six dollar
pot-of-paint sets, that she had tucked away on a hall shelf for when
children visited. Having no brushes, she painted with her hands, a style
she often uses to this day. A few of these early creations, she drew or
painted with eyes closed or with her non-dominant hand.
We welcome you to immerse in the innocence, beauty and holy joy of these art creations, reflective of Home.
