Art Painting of actress Kim Min-hee

Art Painting of actress Kim Min-hee

I saw a photo the other day of the actress Kim Min-hee. I  thought her face was quite appealing and I decided to do a rendition of it, but with a number of changes to enhance the portrait even further. In the photo her hair was a black mass with no details in it. I decided to change the hair to a blue color and also leave open areas in it to show more interest in the hair. Then I added some touches of color to the face and neck to further liven those areas as well. I also thought the lips were a too bright red so in my version I toned that down to a pinkish color, not so overwhelming.
In the photo, her dress was a pale grey color and showed hardly any interest to the viewer. I decided here to add color--a green tone--since I felt this would make the portrait more appealing.The actress Kim Min-hee. Artist: Martin Plant . copyright 2017. My catalog number for this painting is 5058.

A Spammer is Posing as Me

Hello, it's Martin Plant here and I'm writing this new post to tell everyone that I will very soon be showing some of my new artwork for the public to see. I have been busy--I still am--and publishing new posts hasn't always been easy for me the last while. I hope you will be pleased with the new work I will be showing.

By the way. Someone out there has been posing as me. He uses my email name handle but I assure you it's not me. This person is a spammer, so beware of him.

This person is using the name I have no such account. If this person sends you an email, watch out. It's not from me.

If this person tries to sell you something, again, beware. He writes in a foreign language so I have no idea what he is doing. I just thought I'd let you know.

Craniosacral expert--Andrea Axt --art painting

              Andrea Axt, Craniosacral and Polarity Therapist.
 Recently I met a lady by the name of Andrea Axt. She has a Ph.D and is an expert in the field of Polarity Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy. If these words are not familiar to you then think of therapeutic touch or laying on of hands health therapy, since this is what she does. Andrea Axt uses her 'hands-on therapy' on a person's body to ground them, activate their body's energy, and to improve their health physically,emotionally, and spiritually.
 Andrea Axt has been in the field of Polarity and Craniosacral Therapy for over 35 years and is considered one of the best in her field. Mention the name Andrea Axt to health professionals in the complementary medicine field and you can be certain that almost everyone knows her name.

When I met Andrea she invited me to see her office so that I could see first hand what she does. Here you step into a  room lined with large posters on Craniosacral energy as well as certificates which Andrea earned over the years attesting to her training and learning skills. There is also a massage table in the middle of the room where patients lie down and receive treatments by Andrea. The room has an almost fanciful look to it and it reminds you of a mystical scene from a Hollywood movie. The room looks quietly surreal and interesting, and the atmosphere somehow offers you hope for your problems.

I asked Andrea Axt a number of questions concerning her work and she graciously answered them for me.

M.P.   What made you want to learn Craniosacral Therapy?

A.A.   I was doing Polarity Therapy for many years and I was looking for something related to it that would also work on a deep energetic level. I wanted something additional which would be helpful  for my patients. In Craniosacral Therapy the energy we work with is on a different level than that of Polarity Therapy yet is as effective.
M.P.  Where did you learn Craniosacral Therapy?

A.A.  I took courses from Dr. Upledger  and from Franklyn Sills and other teachers. Franklyn Sills teaches a biodynamic approach to Craniosacral Therapy and that is the method I use as well.

M.P.  How long did it take to learn Craniosacral Therapy?

A.A.  Forever. (Andrea said this with a tired laugh) But actually it took many years because it's a continuous process of learning. There's always more to learn about Craniosacral Therapy,but it takes my students a year and a half to learn what I teach. There are six levels to it. After that, the students practice and learn to become experienced in giving Craniosacral sessions.

M.P.  What does Craniosacral Therapy do for people?

A.A.  The main goal is to have the breath of life manifest in every cell of the  body. I do this by gently placing my hands on a patient's body. This helps enliven and balance every part of the body. It's also a very gentle therapy method and can be used on adults, babies, and older people as well.

M.P.  How long does a session usually last?

A.A.  It varies according to how much a patient needs. But usually a session is about forty minutes to an hour.

M.P.  Did you write any manuals on this subject?

A.A.  Yes. I wrote manuals which I provide to the students who take my courses. Also I provide manuals for advanced  Craniosacral classes. Some of these manuals are:The Pineal Gland, Working With the Heart, Gentle Bio Energetics,Working With the Eyes, Working With the Ears, The Lymphatic System, Natural Approach To Depression, and others.

M.P.  How often do people come for repeat sessions?

A.A.  Everybody is different, so it varies. Babies may need to come a few times a week for short sessions. Adults usually come once a week depending on the problem. Some people come less often.

M.P.  Does Craniosacral Therapy work on people with physical, or emotional problems?

A.A.  Actually it works on any level of the body so that the person can feel better physically,spiritually, and emotionally from the session.

M.P.  Do you still give courses in Craniosacral Therapy?

A.A.  Yes. I teach in Poland, Israel, the United States, Canada, and I also taught for many years in Switzerland.

M.P.  Where can people reach you for more information?

A.A.  I have a website. It's
And my email address is
M.P. Thank you for this.

Art Painting--Polar Bear

 Art painting--Polar Bear  Artist: Martin Plant  ©2012

 I had a sheet of dark blue paper and I really wasn't sure what kind of picture I wanted to put on it. Basically I didn't want to lose the dark blue color because I found interesting. So, what picture to use it for? It took me some time to come up with a suitable picture idea.I was watching good old television one night--and there came my picture idea. I saw a white polar bear. Just the thing to put on dark blue paper!

I made a drawing of a polar bear, and in the background I added an iceberg. Then, above the iceberg, I added my signature, the three moons in progress, to give the picture a sort of spiritual look.The effect was just what I wanted. The bear and the dark background made a contrasty combination. The picture also showed the harsh living conditions for polar bears. When I finished the picture I was quite satisfied with it. I hope you like it too.
