Spirits guided her work

Famous After Death Hilma af Klint (born October 26, 1862) was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were among the first abstract art. Yet she created these abstract works in secret and wrote in her will that they were to be stored for 20 years after her death before they could be opened. She belonged to a group called "The Five", a group of women who shared her belief in the importance of trying to make contact with the so-called "High Masters" – often by way of séances. Her paintings, which sometimes resemble diagrams, were a visual representation of complex spiritual ideas. Her sister's death was a major contributing factor to her spirituality. Becoming an artist She showed an early

Written in the height of disaster

My sister was out of contact. Australia was burning. I wrote this at 1.30 in the morning on the 3rd of January, wondering what it must be like for those trapped by fire, up close.

Mixed beginnings - Fire Hell Plus a little Love

We've made it through for another year. A bad start for us in Australia. My sister and her family was caught up in the horrific NSW/Victoria Bushfires and was cut off with no power or communication for 5 days, so was a terrifying time for all. She finally made it out after roads were opened. I wrote a poem in the early hours of the 3rd of Jan. See below. This post was scheduled so let's start with it. The fire poem is at the bottom. Land crossed Lovers I had a satire planned for the first post, but I thought I'd start with something simpler. We can all relate to youthful romances.
