wINTERMAKER
Detail - Wintermaker

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: $2695 +shipping, includes archival mat, plexiglas and framing.

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

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.
