Emotional topography on canvas, Newburgh, NY, March 2023
I always have in mind how emotional tones can be conveyed through various visual elements such as color, texture, shape, and line in my compositions.
The Emotional Tone Scale is a concept developed by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Church of Scientology.
This tool measures the relative spiritual states of individuals based on their emotions and behaviors.
While the Emotional Tone Scale is a concept specific to Scientology, the idea that human emotions and spiritual states are interconnected has been explored by many spiritual and philosophical traditions throughout history.
While the specifics of how this connection is understood and approached may differ, the overarching goal is often to attain greater spiritual awareness, inner peace, and enlightenment.
