Please note - Until recently Aja' s acrylic and pastel paintings were not available for puchase. Her paintings are living breathing organic life forms and they have let her know for years that their home was with her. Through the years and since the photos you see here were taken, her art has evolved and recently Aja was told by her paintings to add greater radiance to many of them as well as a small goddess figure by her signature. (Aja has not yet taken new photos but the changes can be seen on zoom.) After Aja making these changes, Aja listened to her heart and heard her painting tell her that their journey with her was complete and they were now ready to find their new homes!
For all inquiries please get in touch with me here and we can discuss details and if desired, meet on Zoom where you can see the painting live.
I Am the Artist by Aja
By the waters in the dark cave I lie. I Am the Artist who dreams at the forgotten well of love, and rises from her dreams to begin. My fingers spread like flames, shapes glow on the walls of the cave as I paint. I Am the Artist who paints visions passionately. Feeling color in a new way. The invisible side of color, light planted in the jeweled core.
I Am the Artist who frees what is under, what is below, what is beyond. I Am the Artist who receives new worlds in the darkness, and declares her visions complete. My instincts like diamonds cutting through disbelief. I Am the Artist who lights up the darkness with inspiration, and merges with the beauty I see. I Am the Artist who dances in the divine illumination each day a little more, as I paint.
Along the cave’s spiraling path upwards, I proceed. I Am the Artist who comes out of the cave, eventually. I rub my eyes in the sun and people ask me, Who are you? Where do you come from? I Am the Artist who creates a new language when I answer them. I Am the Artist who loves, instead of fears. I Am the Artist who begins her work here. Remember, my Friends, with a paintbrush of fire, we express desire, with a paintbrush of wind, we experience vast visions, with a paintbrush of water, we are the ocean’s sons and daughters, with a paintbrush of earth, we caress the bones of birth. I Am the Artist who loves, instead of fears. I Am the Artist who begins her work here. I Am the Artist who dreams at the forgotten well of love, and rises from her dreams to begin!
