In a state of complete abandonment he revels in the bliss of the moment.

This is really a cat breed, but little Miss Tansy really lives with the elves. She is not a breed, but a truly magical being. She is resting here in a woodsy meadow with a gossamer shawl woven of forest moss cloaking her from human sight. I saw her quite by accident and was probably able to see her due to a slight, brief journey of my mind into the land of the elves.

White ravens are very rare. They are presently being seen on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. These ravens are not albino but rather a mutation like the spirit bears who also frequent the islands of British Columbia.

When times are filled with darkness the white raven will appear teaching us to live in harmony.

Coyote says that it is time for decisions to be made and directions to be taken so that the Earth is healed.

I crossed paths with a tiny mole this morning. Buddha, one of my queenslands, had dispatched it while trotting out in front of me. He is quick as lightening….a formidable killer. It was still alive. I watched it for a bit and, since it was in the shade, decided to leave it and check it on the return trip. Mole left its body during my walk. Maus, my female queensland sniffed delicately at it. She is not a killer. I am always so awe struck by the tiny claws and paddle feet. It’s a bit like seeing a new born human baby. Definitely a magical moment. Well, Mole’s death is part of nature. In honor of mole I created this rabbit painting. I  paint mostly predatory animals of the wild so this time I took a vacation from the usual. They all have their place in nature.

I rarely paint tropical birds. This one is a commission. I had a housecleaning client who had a solarium where he kept some very large parrots in some very large cages with their very large doors open. The birds hated me. I don’t think it was personal, but rather because I carried a hugh feather duster in my belt. One of them used to hide in closets and spring out at me. I had similar experiences with other parrots on my client list. I was bitten and attacked a number of times. To this day I give them a wide berth but I understand that their owners love them.

Enjoying a sunny day on the ice cap. His name is Swedish and means all powerful. Such is a polar bear. I feast on the relaxation that projects from animals. They don’t have the mind chatter racing around like we humans do. They just do what they are doing. It’s very peaceful.
