stars and light

Celestial digital download print

I’ve always loved celestial things. They are magical. I love the stars and the moon and what they represent.

For me, their symbolism is about how we are all connected. How the permanency of earthly things is fleeting but the universe is endless!

The universe is always there and always will be. Long after we are not on this earth.


Inspired by Celestial Quotes


Quotes that mention stars, the galaxy, planets and the universe are so inspiring! I’m always attracted to them.


“I think the Earth and everything around it is connected – the sky and the planets and the stars and everything else we see as a mystery.” — Sarah Brightman


“Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.” — Sarah Williams


“Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.” — Vincent Van Gogh


Celestial Events


A couple years ago, the solar eclipse left a huge impression on me. There was an infinity of half moons floating around our yard. Not many people know about this but I took some photos to prove it. And I captured them in two paintings I titled “In the Shadow on the Floating Moons I and II” And recently, we experienced the lunar eclipse.


When we were in Baja we were able to see the lunar eclipse very clearly! It was if the moon was a little ball hanging in the sky and you could reach up and pluck it from the sky. The 3-D imagery of it was incredible.


These celestial events have inspired me to create this print.


I’ve created a celestial digital download print using some of the imagery from one of my paintings. It is a single mason jar filled with the universe. Pure magic in a jar.


You are stars and light

“You are stars and light” digital print

With a file size that is 8″ x 10″, it will print out nicely on a 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper.

I’ve used Photoshop to enhance and create the imagery. I really enjoy creating digital art using my paintings! Moreover, I’ve been using Procreate to make art so stay tuned for more imagery from that.

Have fun with this celestial print!

Whimsical, Colorful Celestial Artwork

This is a repost from April 2015.

I painted this colorful celestial artwork intuitively as I often do with my art.

Sometimes my paintings feel as if they develop all by themselves and I am just the channel for the creativity.

When I was through with it the title “Sending Love and Healing Light” instantly came to me as that was what I was feeling from it. It uplifted me and I felt the positive energy radiating from it. I love the celestial theme and colors.

I decided to dedicate it to my hubby, Greg, as he was feeling under the weather and could use some healing energy. So I told him I was “Sending Love and Healing Light” to him with this painting and he said that made him feel good. Yay!

“Sending Love and Healing Light”

Whimsical Bike Painting

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Colors of yellow, oranges and red are featured in this new whimsical bike painting. It’s a red mountain bike with an adventurous raven riding along through a colorful woodland. I use vivid blue to contrast with the orange around the tires to represent movement and energy.

I think this is a fun addition to my bike and raven series. I’ve titled it “A Wild and Wondrous Ride.” It is 12″ x 12″ and painted on a wood panel with black painted 1.5″ sides.

I like to show whimsy in my paintings by adding the little white details like the petals on the tires. This is a play on words as you pedal a bike.

Additionally, you can see a part of the title in my piece toward the bottom where it says WILD. If you look in some of my other bike paintings you will also notice a hidden word from the title.

The flag banner represents peace as I use the colors of prayer flags. It also represents fun and I like to add it in some of my bike paintings.

Purchase this painting as a gallery wrap canvas print in my Etsy Shop. You can also find it there as a fine art paper print.

You can see some of my other bike and raven paintings in my Etsy Shop as well.

Also, I list different sizes available but if you need a custom size, just send me an email and I can give you an estimate for cost and make you a custom listing.

Hope you enjoy this new artwork!

whimsical mermaid painting by lindy gaskill

Mermaid Painting “She Carried the Light”

When I got hacked I lost my entire blog so this is a repost (modified) from April 2015.

I will admit it. I’m a weanie when it comes to swimming in big waves at the ocean so I don’t go in very deep when I see waves crashing. I’ve never been a strong swimmer. You might say I dabble in swimming. I have snorkeled a couple times and enjoyed it but I don’t have a deep desire to do it again.

Since I’m not a mermaid, I decided at least I could paint one.

“She Carried the Light”, acrylic on paper, 9″ x 9″

So here she is carrying the light through the depths of the deep blue sea.


There are prints for sale in my Etsy Shop.
