the white lodge

This is the white lodge, a place where I like to go and be one with the wonder, the beauty and the peace. Modern life is a busy life, there is so much going on in the world and it is overwhelming to the senses, the disposition and the constitution. It has been very important to my artistic practice to make an effort to get out of the studio and explore the world around me. The white lodge is where the elders live, it is the place where the eagles soar, and the ravens play. In its winter coat the white lodge sparkles and the air is crisp. I come to here to fill myself with its energy and replenish the soul, and give the heart much needed nature time, so it can recharge and gain strength for this crazy world we humans have created.

winter solstice 

Happy Winter Solstice, here is to the Sun and longer days, looking forward to the sun baths in the studio as I journey onwards with my current body of work. It was an interesting year, as it winds down I reflect on a great year of art and travel, time spent with family, and new friends made. Gone is the old as I empty the backpack and lighten the load, and prepare myself for what the new year has in store. This year I learned to not fight destiny and to persevere in grace, and to ride the waves and be ready for a few sets on the head, yew!

there is a place I like to go

  I could settle for trends, or copy other styles….I have thus far chosen not to go down that path, for better or worse, it is something I have managed to bypass. This can make it difficult when it comes to my work being accepted in the now, it takes time to develop a style, it takes patience and perseverance to overcome doubt and the fear. It is imperative to not give in to these factors, and have faith that somehow it will work out. It is also a good idea to get out of the studio from time to time and recharge the soul, the mind, and the heart space.

‘towards silence’ 👂 a new minimotion with soundscape ‘cat dreams’ from busy city to a mountain peace, I find myself on a road less travelled, where clouds drift gracefully, putting mind at ease, I hope you like it, and well ✌️

There is something to be said for slowing things down and letting things happen, everything happening just as it is supposed to without interfering the natural cycle, and allowing the artist within to be 

still frame from minimotion me going at it in the studio


These are some panoramas of a place I go to in B.C. to disconnect from city life and remind myself that there is a whole other world going on, this place, this planet, provides us with so much and yet there are some who want to continue to do harm in the name of economy, and growth, with little to no plan for the consequences which you and I will pay for. So I am grateful for these moments, when it’s just me and the eagles, the clouds, the water, sky, and the trees, and all of the sounds, the wind as it dances though the trees, the sounds of ravens free falling, oh what a gift, so I come here and pay my respects, because there’s no guarantees it will last.

So without further adieu my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary commemorative video by halts

I have been in BC once again exploring the surroundings, getting inspired, doing some healing work, doing some garden work, hanging out with eagles, bear spotting, and working on the constitution (that is doing some restoration to the fundamental well being of this here author). I have seen my world turned upside down, and felt it was a good time to do some reflection and self work, and what better place to do that than BC, Canada, a place I have been blessed to spend half my existence in, and hopefully for many years to come.
