Forest Dreamtime


As I continue to explore Procreate, I have taken a previous portrait, of the lovely and beautiful Molly, and placed her into the context of a Forest, specifically the ‘Iai Valley of west Maui, where she was my guide one fine day in paradise. It was a magical place, peaceful, full of A’ina, Mother Earth, a place where battles once stained the water red, now sacred, and serene, the stream clear and refreshing, reinvigorating. It is here I had this vision of Molly in the Forest, eloquently titled, Forest Dreamtime.
Interesting note: Music is a big part of my process, and when I actually know the individual responsible for producing these all important sounds, well it becomes really easy to tap into the flow, and one of those folks is my friend Adam aka Beatfarmer, Mahaloness to you brother man Beatfarmer blog link
