What an honor it was, to be asked to paint the corgis for Her Majesty!  I had been painting every Thursday morning with terminally ill children and promised them they could come with me to Buckingham Palace to deliver this painting to the Queen.

I hired a big bus and off we all went. Unfortunately, as I couldn’t tell Her Majesty exactly when I would finish the painting, we were greeted instead by her butler, who was indeed very charming I felt like the real Cinders  (get it Cindy ..Cinderella!)

I called the following day to ask where the painting would be hanging and if I could bring the children to see it. For security reasons they could not allow anyone in to see it although told me that the Queen loved it and it made her smile. It had been hung it in her private quarters.

Everyone says how did you feel when I painted it, I felt great, it doesn’t matter where it goes however,  The Queen works so hard I’m pleased she’s enjoying it after all isn’t that what art is about passing your energy on to others.”

ART FROM THE HEART  –  by Cindy Lass

 

Paintings are my escape, I see and feel things apparently quite child like.

Professor Stan Smith who I bumped into at The Chelsea Arts Club explained after seeing four photos of my first paintings,  why I should carry them in my pocket  all the time.  He said I had my own style, and that I should remember to never have an art class.  So I went from never ever painting to doing these.

I sold out in my first show. I guess people liked the bold colors and energy.

 

Art has taken me on a road of enjoying being, no rules just letting go on the canvas. I really enjoy different people coming to my studio and relaxing with me to paint. It does give me pleasure for people to smile and say they get up lifted when looking at my work. It’s great fun having different works all over the world, recently neighbors rented a villa in south of France and found one of one paintings there….

 

Art saved me from feeling unfulfilled.  It’s the only time I can be happy being quiet and at peace with myself. I don’t get distracted…. I go to a place in my brain, or my higher self, and paint with out thinking, just being. It’s the only time nothing is questioned or complicated .

 

NO BODY INTERFERES with me, my paints and my canvas……..SHEER BLISS”

FEBRUARY 2017 – LONDON
What an remarkable morning. I had the privilege to be invited to the Brahma Kumaris to talk about my art (Anne Frank – Everyone Has The Right To Blossom). It was apparently harmony week around the globe
I assumed in front of 70 different cultured women that I would be talking for about 15 minutes  -a long time later after that I was being hugged and chatted to by all these charming women of all the emotional difficulties they’ve faced throughout their lives. It was so moving that apparently one of the women had to leave the talk and was retching outside as my story of my little life had touched upon her and overwhelmed her.  Georgina Long who invited me sent me a lovely email to say what a lovely vibration and energy was in the room that morning.
I realized that showing raw self, although painful to do help me and everyone else in the room. We all hugged each other and it is a morning I will always remember very fondly. I can now say I am a Woman, who has the ability to have empathy, compassion and loves listening to others

 

 

Dear friends,

“Om shanti. At this time everyone in the world is in need of love and honesty. These are things we understand from looking at our own hearts. Put your hand on your heart and check if you have an honest heart. Have you freed yourself from falsehood by making truth your companion? If you have, then that will be revealed through your drishti, your elevated vision. Keep an honest heart and a big heart. If you have a big heart and an honest heart then you will always be prosperous”

With love,

BK Janki
