Victoria Coulter MD "Rain of Grace"
Watercolor, gold leaf & Gold Webbing, framed size (24”x 28.5” x .5”). Image size (14.5”x18.5”)
This image was inspired while camping on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I was in ceremony on an island of white sandstone jutting out over the edge of the rim at sunset. As the winds dropped and the stars began to populate the sky, I felt the distance between self and cosmos dissolve. I lay on my back in Awe and noticed a violet hue in the sky above the deepest part of the Canyon. As I watched, time out of time, the violet ‘cloud’ very gradually took on the subtle shape of a spiral, like a spinning galaxy. I felt my heart open to this miracle allowing myself to receive without trying to explain. I called my friend over and we both observed this phenomenon for hours. We felt drenched in the golden light of Divine Love, actually it felt like the entire Earth was receiving this Blessing deep into her metamorphic core like a gentle rain ushering us all into a new era of Grace, transmutation and evolution. I feel this Grace alive in my heart ever more fully in the breath of meditation these days. May you feel it too.
Victoria Coulter MD began painting during a five-year retreat from the world to quiet the mind, expand her horizons and allow her deeper self to inform me through its language of symbols. Each painting has felt like a gift which teaches Victoria on a very deep level. As she spends time with the paintings, she finds their messages being fleshed out in dreamtime and in the way she view herself and the world, somehow becoming embodied within her consciousness and life experience. Coulter’s hope is that in sharing these images, others will enjoy them and find that they speak with a language beyond words that may awaken aspects previously undiscovered. Viewed with an open curiosity to find the hidden images within light and shadow, one may discover a new and fresh experience of seeing the world from an unaccustomed perspective.
Victoria Coulter’s paintings arise from a spontaneous process of playing with the materials. When the paint dries, she begins an evocative exploration of ‘seeing’ what wants to be enhanced and working to bring out the images that show themselves. She attempts to let spirit lead and let go of wanting to be in control.
As a finishing touch, she hand embellishes each painting with gold leaf. In the framing process, the paintings are floated behind museum quality anti-reflective, UV blocking glass to insure visualization of the finest details. Victoria Coulter, MD is a retired physician and surgeon offering body energy work, sacred ceremony and fine art in Sedona, Arizona.
