Sunshine Coast Mona Lisa (a magical work that I was very lucky to have make in that very special place). I want to say thank you to my hosts and the place in all its manifestations. There will always be a piece of the Sunshine Coast in my heart.
Acrylic on Sunshine Coast (BC) Flotsam, made some moons ago. In that same location I was lucky to be honored with eagle feathers, and have since than passed those feathers along the line, as they are not meant to be a possession as much as they are a lesson/reminder/talisman… of the eagle, and the medicine wheel which is not a Native American term, but one that was adopted from American settlers of European descent, according this link anyway Dancing ti Eagle Spirit Society . I did produce a hand panted medicine wheel for a client, he wanted the animals in a specific order, and even in my own research I find there is quite a bit of variance. I think it goes maybe without saying, the animal symbol, the season, the color association and direction are somewhat dependent on the group and their particular system and order of ideas. The eagle is a powerful symbol and offers great wisdom, that we can soar high like an eagle, that we can empower ourselves, and enrich our lives, how lucky we really are.
FotoMahaloness -the eagle, habitats (the frozen Columbia River, this being Windermere Lake, yet another eagle habitat. It seems the eagle has a way of finding itself in the paintings I produce, although ‘I’ in the way that through my body vessel I depict the eagle. It is an honor to paint the eagle and share Mother Earth’s lesson with you all.
