Our Great Teacher - Sedwa'gowa'ne

Great Teacher

Detail

 

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: $3495, includes archival mat,
plexiglas and framing.

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

I have always admired the beauty, intelligence and tenacity of wild birds. Their unique songs, diligence with caring for their offspring and lovely colors flying through the skies. Here Keeper of the Songs arrives in the spring to bless the new baby blue jays with their unique song. A blessing to be shared with the world.

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.

This stunning image took more than 6 months to complete. It was inspired by the incredible storms that dance over the northern prairies. The star constellation is the Lynx, bringer of storms. Female rains bring in Spring time flowers.

Sweet grass flows across the bottom, behind the beaded medallions.

The scratched birch bark design is my interpretation of the beautiful designs on Birch bark Rogans of the past.
