DescriptionWhere is the Magic Road, My Love?Where is the Magic road, my love? Sometimes it sounds like we have lost track of it. Today I sit with magic needle and thread, stitching and mending, my original feeling back into my heart, my magic back into my mind, my energy back into my body.....as I marry my body to the angel of my soul. I sat up last night honoring the memory of the stars that cast my name upon the sky at the opening of my birth. Let me never be seperate from you, again, you who made me, I spoke into the night, no matter what. Let me be that friend that puts me on the magic road, the road that travels through the lilacs and the tall grasses, that smells the air, the roads that lead to dreams of childhood, precious and exiting........I am going beyond seperation, now, where the dark and the light are woven like beautiful cords of equal being into my skin, the sun shining from within my eyes, the soft embrace of night and the moon's wisdom pooring out of my hands..... back into the time when the world was a beautiful story......wishing to experience itself through us......I see through new eyes, new thoughts, new feelings, new hands, new legs, new body...... ones that lay roses at your feet where your tears fell, ones that would put a golden crown upon your head that illuminates this world.......and I wonder into the gorgeous, never to be conquered territory of your brave new soul......Who are you? Who are you becoming? What are you stories? And you tell me.....and fill me up with a magic world that is all you. Some people speak it so new and fragile as if no one has ever wondered into their hearts........how can this be?.....so many are still sleeping in 'reality' simply because they haven't realized that upon awakening you slip into the most amazing dream.........your magic life.

Gabrielle Lisa Cinelli, Albuquerque Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I have been an Artist and creative in many areas since I was very young. Born with a natural gift and love for all that is creative and beautiful. I came from a family of artists on my mothers side, and some very spontaneous bright hearted Italians on my Fathers side, the combination has been a colorful combustion of creativity in all that I do, think and say. I am currently finishing up my double degree in Psychology and Fine Art and as well teaching others the joy of Art, Story, Dance, Theatre and Songs and Creative journaling....
Each of my paintings has represented a story or rite of passage. These canvases are where i have put myself and my life back together, invisioned my best, cleared my mind of the worst, with color and beauty and forms, symbols and flowers and Nature.....This is where I have been touched by the Divine, again and again, as my soul sat at the foot of my spirit recieving these beautiful images. They transcend my soul's experiences and have been recognized by many souls as their experiences too.
I also spent about 5 years on the island of Hawaii where I was astonished by the beauty I saw and felt in so much of nature everyday. Many of my currently projects and portion of the proceeds now goes towards creative green projects that celebrate the beauty of the natural world and our creativity as human beings to live in Harmony with it, and teaching others to enmerse themselves in the joy of Creativity.
