Izabel Raa, “Night Guards”, or “Beholders of Night,” 2017, oil on canvas, 12 x 16 in.
This painting was created on the night of the Summer Solstice (21/22 of June 2017), the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere in terms of daylight.
Two owls are keepers of Cosmic Wisdom and can tell you many things if you are able to fall down into your inner silence and hear…

Through my paintings, I wish to help others experience an essential spiritual awakening and find integrity and inner harmony, to hear the heart at much deeper levels and recall the Song of the Soul.

I would like to help individuals to establish the connection between oneself and the soul of our planet, Gaia, and with the plant and animal kingdoms, as well as outer space and stellar systems.

With my art, I would like to provide the environment and settings for work with certain states of mind and energies, worlds and creatures, to help transform negative patterns, find inner balance and confidence in oneself, and to develop greater intuition and human consciousness.

My aim is to awaken, inspire, harmonize, and fill hearts with joy and a sense of beauty and the sublime.

Generally, I create a painting with a particular setting, or intention or a mood and attempt to embed the information inside the painting. Therefore, this artwork can be used as a tool for meditation and inner work.

Through my artworks, I also want to express my admiration for the beauty and diversity of life on our planet and its inhabitants, and the extensive world of the magnificent space of the infinite universe with its stars, galaxies, nebulae, constellations, and other worlds.
