~ Special Commissions ~
From Artist-Designer, Leslie Montana.
Since the beginning of history, art and its creation have been thought to have a special connection with the divine. As a testament to that, I can tell you that when I’m attuned and ready to paint, absolutely everything is stunningly beautiful. It’s as if I’m peering through and into another realm of higher reality. My job is to sit in an active meditation and allow the painting to be created through me as I hold that vision. Over time I’ve come to understand that the place I go in my interior is equally, if not more important than my artistic skills and their application. When I’m connected and in the zone, I create with the heart of my higher self. I’m centered in what I call an ultra-alive, quiet, spaciousness and the energy of that awareness is free to come through and become part of the work. I’m in an altered state that feels very normal to me. This state is usually reserved for creative activity, though on more than one occasion I’ve been approached by people with sensitive sight and told that light and color were streaming out of my fingertips on the dancefloor. Engrossed in the experience, it’s probably similar to what happens when I’m painting. The inspiration I experience, my connection to source, comes through and into semi-physical form as an energetic imprint. This energy, which has often been described as palpable by my collectors and appreciators is a positive thing. And my process which involves attention, intention and all that I do to make a work of art, creates something wonderful and unique that’s in addition to the obvious. I've always had this gift, however, in January of 2018 I began asking in a whole new way what I could see and create specifically for the benefit of others. How could I reveal to my clients something that was meant specifically for them through my work as a painter? Nature's realm, a place I'm intimately familiar with delivered amazingly beautiful answers. As I asked, images come to me along with the symbolic connection to the person I inquired for. As I tested the waters and experimented a new service was born. Special Commissions, Exquisite Paintings on the Nature of Flowers, Exclusively for You is something I'm offering to just a handful of collectors each year. Never before have people been so hungry for what I would call practical spirituality. To really feel and know the interconnectedness of life right down to the level of physical creation. As your interest becomes real it creates the space for me to see your work of art in the ethers. Then, the act of bringing it into being is where the magic happens. Please contact me for more information and to find out how you might be able to participate in a collaboration such as this.
