Nature Spirit

I finished this piece during the energy of the autumn equinox when light and darkness are equal. It is a great turning point on the wheel as we move from harvest toward reflection and rest. A necessary pause before we renew our energy to begin again. My autumnal spirit is inspired by goldenrod with stone texture, layers of rust, salt for purity, fresh burnt plant ash for protection, earth pigments, rainwater and acrylic. It is cleansed with the smoke of freshly gathered prairie sage. May it inspire solace and rest. Canvas is 1.5 inch gallery wrapped and ready to hang.

Sunflower Gloriana

I love late summer, because the prairie land is blanketed with sunflowers. They grow wild here in great bunches on thick green stalks. Before the wind changes to the north, nature provides us this one last show of glorious color to remind us of her goodness. My rendition has undulating stone texture, deep layers of rust, salt and acrylic. May it inspire happiness. Canvas is 1.5 inch gallery wrapped and ready to hang. SOLD to an amazing couple.

Great Full Moon

The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, a brightly lit orb to illuminate the field. Nature’s gift to help us be industrious to gather in our work before a season of rests sets in. It is one of my favorite moons, an orange lantern ascending from the Eastern sky. My whimsical rendition is painted in the days leading up to the moon. I made it large and glorious with two types of stone texture, rust, salt, Kansas clay, cedar ash and acrylic. It is smudged with purifying wild sage. May it inspire wonder and play. Canvas is 1.5 inch gallery wrapped and ready to hang.

The Blue Flower

Blue flowers are unique and rare, symbolizing a journey to discover ourselves. A longing to find our place in the world and find beauty in all things. My rendition has undulating stone texture with rust, rainwater, acrylic, oil stick and sea salt. It is smudged with cleansing wild sage. May it inspire peaceful meditation on love and life. Sold to an amazing family.
