Kokopelli was one of the earliest Spirit Figures depicted in the ancient art and petroglyphs of the North American Southwest. He was usually depicted as a dancing humpbacked flute player. He was believed to have many roles in those ancient times -- as a patron of music, as a bringer of fertility, and as a rain maker. He was also believed to be something of a trickster. Some of the Kokopelli images are thousands of years old. This is my modern take on this important spirit of the Southwest.
As far as I'm concerned a painting speaks for itself. Paintings are messages from the heart. No explanation is necessary. If you don't understand it, you just don't get it and it's not a message to you.
I have been painting for almost 60 years. That's longer than most people have been alive. I have education in art (maybe too much or maybe not enough depending on who you ask) and I have a BFA degree, but I think that the best education in painting is doing it and doing it with passion and enthusiasm and energy every day.
