Exploring the Mystery of Orbs

Orb it Out, original oil painting by Tiffany Davis-Rustam, 2012.

Do you ever notice white orbs of light shooting across happy photographs? That is what I’m exploring with this quick new painting I did recently.

Orbs are mysterious in nature, and there are many speculations as to what they are. They are naked to the human eye, and only photography (and art of course( has captured their image so far. Some say they are specks of dust or lens flares, but since they’re so elusive to recreate, I believe they are possibly traveling spirits, or even guardian angels amongst us.

To explore the mysteries of orbs, I imagined their energetic movements bouncing and mingling with each other, explored through a prism of joyous rainbow colors. I feel like this painting will serve as a study for involving orbs in more complex ways to come. Whatever your beliefs are, there is something universally compelling about an orb — a sphere echoes most the basic shapes in existence: a seed, a planet, a drop of water.

For a great documentary on orbs, check out “Orbs: The Veil is Lifting.”

Do you have any orb photographs to share like the one below?
