Comforting Realms, by Marianne McGuire

“Comforting Realms” came from my lifelong experience of oneness with all beings, which is available for all who wish to access it. I believe that art can be used as a portal through which we can all feel our universal consciousness. On this magical journey, we move from the shadow toward the light where there is no duality, no separation between the individual and the universal.

It is my deep desire to create art that acts as an invitation to the viewer, to beckon you into the painting, into the energy of the image so that you too can explore another realm. So you can be drawn into the light through a meditative state and feel the scintillating peace, comfort, and excitement of oneness, and connect with your spirit and the truth of who you really are.

Painting what I feel when I am ‘in beingness’ is my passion. My mission is to connect with the beauty that already exists all around us—within and without—to inspire and uplift those who own my pieces.

When I am standing in front of the easel, all that matters is being awareness. That’s where the inspiration comes from; that’s where the beauty comes from. When I paint, it’s from a state of presence. I imbue my pieces with this energy so the viewer can be drawn in and “enter” the now more easily.

Because I connect with this space before and while creating my paintings, they are birthed for here, and that’s why your true self—beyond your conditioning—responds to these paintings. My desire is for you to allow yourself to feel this magical energy and experience presence and oneness in your everyday life.
