“As a representation of the giving energy, God created the concept of love; and as a representation of the receiving energy, He created the concept of gratitude. So love is the active giving energy, and gratitude is the passive receiving energy. If we were to express these two energies in colours, love is pink and gratitude is green.”
-Dr Masaru Emoto

Field of Love is inspired by nature, particularly the mauri, or “life-force” and playfulness of water and the large field of grass stretching out towards the sea at our beautiful home in the Bay of Islands.
The painting is embodied with so many loving memories full of gratitude for happy times and joyous moments (particularly during the COVID-19 years when fear threatened to steal everyone’s joy). Dining alfresco with friends under the stars, laughing and dancing, barefoot on the grass, listening to our native birds (the Kiwis), at night as they foraged for food, and, of course, all the smiling faces of visitors and collectors to my happy gallery, Art@Rangitane
It is also inspired by the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto, who once wrote that water is embodied with the dual spiritual energies “love and gratitude.” He once noted that “love is pink and gratitude is green”.
Green is also the colour of the heart chakra and, of course, Mother Earth, Gaia. The heart chakra is an essential energy centre within our body’s subtle energy system. It is located in the centre of our chest, near our heart. The heart chakra is associated with love, compassion, empathy, and connection.
When the heart chakra is balanced and harmonious, it can positively impact our overall well-being. It allows us to experience and express love, both towards ourselves and others. A balanced heart chakra promotes feelings of inner peace, joy, and acceptance.
When our heart chakra is functioning optimally, it enables us to form healthy relationships, maintain emotional balance, and cultivate deep connections with others. It also encourages us to have compassion for ourselves and those around us, fostering a sense of unity and interconnectedness.
To nurture and balance the heart chakra, various practices can be beneficial. These may include meditation, visualisation exercises, practising acts of kindness, engaging in activities that bring joy and fulfilment, and cultivating self-care habits—including walking barefoot on the grass. These practices can help promote emotional healing, enhance our sense of well-being, and foster a loving and compassionate approach to life.
Taking care of our heart chakra is a continuous journey of self-discovery and growth. It is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of love, compassion, and our connection to the world around us.
Numerous studies also reveal that gazing at a painting of nature can bring these benefits indoors, reducing anxiety and increasing wellbeing
This painting is from my Sky Fall Exhibition
, where I showcase works created after leaning into beautiful flow during the co-creation with Spirit process. Field of Love has a definite feel-great, magical vibe.
