Here's the latest painting to come off the easel. It's called Ancestors and is part of the "Precious Things Hidden In The Earth" series I'm exhibiting at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery in April with the Art Azo Group.
Ancestors (12" x 12" acrylic and metallic leaf on wood panel)
This piece evokes several themes that run through the series: caves, gold leaf, bones, and shape-shifting visits and/or messangers from my ancestors.
The three bones looked like an I Ching anagram, and I was delighted by the synchronicity of its meaning: Ch'ien > Heaven - Yang - Force - a Dragon
"Denotes a spirit that lives in both the heavens and the waters. It is a dynamic, timeless shape shifter with creative power and force."
