Emmeline Craig: Peaceful Images to Soothe Your Mind

Emmeline Craig

Images do have great power.

Therefore, as an artist I strongly believe I have a great responsibility regarding what I create and put out in the world, therefore I choose to induce blissfulness through images…

It is my intention to elevate the vibrational tone of my surroundings and I infuse my paintings with that intention so that looking at them soothes the mind, lifts the spirit and feeds the soul with primal exhilaration.

I work in a tiny studio, in the small coastal town of Bolinas in California where I settled in 2000. I am a self taught painter, born in France in 1958, I always loved drawing and painting, and started exhibiting and selling my work in 1989.

Today I have the joy to be a full time self supported artist through the sales of my work at the studio or through my website http://www.emmelinecraig.com.

I am currently looking for publishers because my dream is to see my images go all around the world…

I currently paint with watercolors on paper, and non-toxic oils on canvas. They are both exhilarating mediums in different ways, I really enjoy them as much.

The pieces presented here are all watercolors, because in time I created a lot more of those than oils which I started using only 2 years ago. One can look at my work on: http://www.emmelinecraig.com

The Kiosk

The Kiosk

Imaginary scene, inspired by a real colorful coffee cart here in my town.(I only modified the roof and “transported” it in a different place)

.

The Portal

The Portal

This piece is about transition, in life in general, in relationships, in health…

.

The Chair

The Chair

This is the second version of an imaginary scene that is dear to me. The first version, called “The Lantern” is posted on my website.

.

Peace and Quiet

Peace and Quiet

What is more stress relieving than gazing at a blue ocean, in presence of a lazy cat stretched out in the sun? I played with the different depths of the scene to get a little surreal feeling.

.

Embracing It

Embracing It

It was a time of change and I was re-affirming my love of life in the Now.

.

Backyard Zen

Backyard Zen

This is preparatory work for a large oil on canvas, available on my website, called “Backyard Zen”. It’s about the daily bliss of sitting in one’s backyard, surrounded by wild grasses and open sky.

.

Laundry in the Wind with Green Hills

Laundry in the Wind with Green Hills

For me there is something extremely homey and joyfully free in fresh laundry hung on a rope out in the wind…

.

Early Morning on Bolinas Lagoon

Early Morning on Bolinas Lagoon

Just the bliss of very early morning on this beautiful body of water that we are blessed to have close by !

    These exquisite images have literally saved my sanity and calmed my
    soul during a very difficult growth time in my journey. I have spent
    any spare money I can come up with over the last couple of years to
    collect as many of Emmeline’s paintings to hang on my walls as I could
    afford. Definitely a precious investment. I can never thank her enough
    for providing so much nurturing beauty in this time of planetary chaos.

  6. Hi Nickie !
    Just read your comment. Thank you for your appreciation !
    I don’t know if you noticed but you still can get the images you like, when the originals are sold, as archival Giclee prints !Under every original title, there is an option for a Giclee Print, with sizes and prices. Only the miniatures are not copied.
    Also there is a bunch of still available ones in the “recent works” gallery on my site.
    Let me know if you have any particular question or request !
    emmelinebj@hotmail.com
    Be well, blessing on your work…
