Painting - Watercolor/24k Gold Ink/glitter
This is a medicine art painting. Medicine Art is a genre of art which is done as an act of power, of magic, of specific intention, performed through prayer and spiritual alignment. This painting shows a medicine person within a celestial realm of inner space, of golden light and balance, offering a prayer and salutation to the spiritual pantheon---the higher "powers that be"---represented by the living rain, lightning,elemental forces and the Ancestral Sky Spirits--- the Thunder Buffalos--- who guard the entrance to the inner worlds. The prayer, the offering, the invocation, and the intention, all combine into an energetic movement which helps balance and heal the problems our Mother Earth is dealing with, most especially the assaults to our global atmosphere as a result of all the years of nuclear emissions which have been exponentially amplified by the ongoing Fukushima situation. Understand this: all acts of harmony, love, peace, beauty, and prayer, so much a part of an artists' life, make an immense contribution to the collective human family and inspire others to find correlative creative ways of living towards this end. One of my favorite quotes comes from an Aboriginal Elder from Australia who said: "In the end, it will be creativity that will heal the world".
