Serenity by Diamante Lavendar

 

ClearSerenity by Diamante Lavendar

Today I’m posting one of my older pieces. It is entitled Serenity. I drew this abstract piece with colored pencils.

I titled this piece Serenity because I drew it from a place of serenity. Serenity is a special place within our hearts where anything is possible. It is the site of origin…the center of our being. Serenity is a space within us that connects with Divine presence; a place where we truly know exactly who and what we are.

We all crave serenity. It is actually a need created in us to commune with Divinity. When we don’t have serenity, we feel the emptiness and the loss in our lives. To fill that empty space is what we yearn and search for. However, all we really need to do is connect with the love within! Then Divinity begins to fill the emptiness with the beautiful energy of love, compassion and peace! Thus serenity blooms and grows along with a sense of purpose and fulfillment!

Addictions by Diamante Lavendar

This is one of the first art pieces I posted online.  It is a colored pencil work entitled Addictions.

Cropped Addictions by Diamante Lavendar

This is a personal piece for me since I struggled under the weight of addictions for years. Substance abuse was the way I coped with the pain I endured as a child…a very ineffective coping mechanism indeed!

I used dark colors to depict the weight and the pain that addictions have on our souls.  It is a heaviness and a darkness that can only be known by a fellow addict.

Addictions have a debilitating effect on the psyche and spirit of a person.  They deaden our senses and dull our perceptiveness.  We see the world through different eyes…many times eyes of apathy and depression when we are living under the weight of our addictions.

I created this drawing to bring awareness to the fact of the pain that addictions bring to life. Many times we believe they are a means of escape when in reality they are a road to destruction.  It is my hope that this drawing will bring to light the devastation addictions cause in the lives of those who suffer.
