  Daytime

Kisikaw (Cree) for Daytime

This painting celebrates the glory of a new day. How each sunrise presents its own thumb print across the land. Here we enjoy a gorgeous Swallowtail Butterfly making the rounds seeking nectar.

The center area is a scratched birch bark design reflecting the beauty of nature. Along the bottom are delightful blue birds and flowers, a beading design of my own doing.

This painting is 8 1/4" x 6 1/4" painted on Arches 300-lb watercolor paper with acrylic paints.The frame is the second of a matched set circa 1850 from Bavaria Germany. The two frames are a matched pair and I believe they are walnut. I've cleaned and sealed them carefully.

There is no glass or Plexiglas. The painting is then clear coated with a satin UV protective wash. Enjoy!

Arrival of Wintermaker - kiwetin

With Autumn in full swing, I am turing my attention once more to storytelling and new inspirations.

This painting speaks of the arrival of Wintermaker among the night starry skies and
how Wintermaker was bound by his vow to allow the spring to return each year (The flowers at the bottom & baby loons
riding on the parent's back in the center)) The cycle of life with the 4-seasons of the Big Dipper constellation,
plus the birth and death of all living things (Regeneration),
the song of the loon reminding us of the space between the worlds. More to come!

Our Great Teacher - Sedwa'gowa'ne

Great Teacher
 

I was deeply moved by the teachings of the haudenosaunee by the great teacher Handsome Lake Seneca, wolf clan. Fortunately the sacred revelations transmitted to and through him have been preserved and translated.

There are no photographs of this Teacher, though some exist of his other relations. I am painting this out of respect to his message, great trials he endured and acknowledgement of a message greatly impacting modern people.

This painting is not meant to exactly represent handsome Lake's likeness. It is an honoring piece in spirit.

PRICE: $2895, includes archival mat,
plexiglas and framing.

Image size: 30" x 22" approx. plus framing.

Maskwacîs - Bear's Tipi (Devils Tower)
Bears Teepee

Bears Teepee

Mouse Over to Zoom In Zoom In Below

Bears Tipi AKA Devils Tower in Eastern Wyoming is sacred to many Tribes. I had been captivated by this site for many years and finally was able to paint its image.

The star formation behind the mountain is the Milky Way. The 4 male figures represent the four aspects of man: blue, yellow, white and red. The bead work was inspired by a very old sample of quill work from the 1600's. The bones are horse bones, illustrating the journey of life is circular.
