A Surreal Mystical Photo, Mistress of the Waterline

35mm Film Apparition .. Mistress of the Waterline

Mistress at the Waterline Pharess Ghostly Apparition of Mother Mary Figure Photo Art by Miko Arts Zen Portrait A  
This one particular photograph sat in my collection of developed 35mm negatives for several weeks. Artwork and creativity are funny that way, there's so much intuition that's both hiding and revealing things to us in time, almost as if sometimes I feel like there's invisible spiritual and esoteric schedules where certain perceptions are revealed when the rest of Life is right.

And then, it was right. Or, more accurately, one of my sisters was hanging out with me in my studio, and saw this photo from just the right particular angle, and exclaimed how pretty a picture of a woman I had photographed.

But, it wasn't a woman, it was, or at least when I took the photo Mysterious Waterline, just the place where a calm moving creek behind the sculptor Elisabet Ney once lived, in her majestically tranquil home and art studio. 

As I looked closer, it truly was a woman, adorned in a long flowing white headdress and gown. 

Along with this woman's mystical apparition appearing in the tranquil water, there were many totem-like forms within the recesses of her body. Faces, heart like silhouettes, and other surreal movements of patterns and beings appear to hover and float within her spectacular darkness. 

Is she an angel? Is she the spirit of Elisabet Ney? Is she the Virgin Mary? Is she an Egyptian Pharaoh come to appear in the poetic Texas river shrub roots and aquatic reflections? To me she's the very person who needed to appear, in the right place, at the right time. 

This mistress of the waterline inspired me to get another roll of infrared 35mm film, and continue pursuing the beauty and apparitions of the wild and mysterious nature all around us.

Hi! I'm Miko, and thank you for checking out my artwork!

I've been painting, practicing photography, 

Miko in art studio working on triptych painting called "Promethea," a three part oil painting ocean series.and I've been doing commercial work for businesses and musicans for over 20 years. I've been drawing ever since gradeschool, and have never been let down from the daily practice of making art. My passion for creativity has led me naturally into sharing what I paint and photograph with the world, first through just drawings for friends, and eventually, into Art Shows I learned to produce and promote to sell my original paintings.

My gallery here is an ongoing hand crafted & built showcase of what Artwork means in my life. Keep checking back as I am continually adding the personal stories to each of my paintings, and putting up new sections of this art space for you to enjoy. If you want to connect through Instagram or my Facebook Page you're more than welcome, since it's easier to post different pictures of what I work on there. I have a wide variety of my Print / Merch Artwork I've created and uploaded to my Fine Art America page (link below) if you are looking for a perfect gift for you or a loved one, and the other links let you see some of how I enjoy playing music, doing art tutorials, and working on my motorcycle. Look forward to hearing from you!
