For those asking what kind of pencils..
the pencils I used for this drawing are pictured below

They are Prismacolor Premier~Turquoise
Medium Graphite~Sketching Pencils
Set  of 12 in a tin..( tree on cover of tin)
So far they are a lovely variety
and some really soft leads
so you have to be a bit gentle with them.
I have only tried few of them so far, must sharpen the rest!

Nature's Divine and Eternal Mates

This week I am working on another large drawing 
on bristol board.

Nature Deva shining the cosmic spiral  of light above
...creates the Sacred Space 
inside the hollow 
of  a giant Ancient Birch Tree, 
a Sacred-Portal
both Eternal Mates united
weaving and intertwining 
as  One Light, One Love, One Spirit
They Unite....creating the Sacred-Cosmic-Seeds 
for those on earth 
to find their divine pair

a visual dream journey and meditation 
will accompany this piece when completed!

still much detail and shading to create...

Sacred Spaces ~ Journeying Within

This is  a new piece I am working on

As I sketch 
I travel inward
the pencil guiding me towards 
the sacred and quiet places within

I listen..I shape the lines..
blending gently with my hands...

I am searching this map of creation
questing....and reaching

...and I feel something 
reach back

When the sacred within you... reaches back
you are changed somehow
like an invisible thread of light 
weaving you Home
and making you Whole
~victoria pettella~

Wishing you sacred moments..
and sacred journeys within!

Upon the Waters: Wizards of Water and Air

upon the waters

faces from the sea

white wizard upon grey water

divining souls beneath 

upon the waters

spirits of healing 

carrying what is lost back to land

and up towards the Light and the living

Thank you for meeting one of my 
Water Wizards : Gifts:
Finding Hidden Souls and helping carriers of grief, 
Waters of emotional release, 
Transitioning what is lost 
and returning to the Angels of healing 
for transformation and peace 
returning all Hearts back home 
to wholeness and love
Note: a blogger wrote and asked about the unicorn style moustache
It is a~Unicorn horn-diviner -shaped moustache, like a water-finder-soulfinder rods
~his hair-beard is magical and shapeshifts
Most of my wizards have these , but all have different gifts-purpose connected to them.

Gifts of Freedom

Another series: 
Elemental wizards of AIR

The white wizard of healing
Wise Sage , Master of Winds
Magician of The Mind, Visionary Journeys
Wizards of flying , Gifts of Feathers & Freedom
