autumnal black bear

Autumn is a time for contemplating the bounty of the summer in the process of preparing for winter. Must have light and shadow.

I really had intended that this bear be a bit jolly with his leafy ornament but he didn’t feel that way. I never know how anything is going to turn out. Just a flick of the brush or a bleed of the colors and everything changes. I am usually content to let the image determine it’s own destiny.

His name is Leonardo. He is an inside cat spending most of his time with the children. He loves his little ones and likes to cuddle their soft toys…. especially the rag doll. He is a pampered cat and his children are oh so gentle with him.

A shield serves as a sacred spiritual protection. My friends Alice and Mike have some raven friends who visit them on their deck daily. They always have stories to tell about their ravens and it makes me wonder if the birds are there in some kind of protecting capacity.


a sense of wonderment

In the land of Faerie the sun rise is filled with beautiful banners of color. Or this is what I have been told by those who have come back. But then you can’t necessarily believe what any soul who returns from Faerie tells. It’s not that they are lying, but there are just these spells.

running with wolves

Many years ago I painted what I used as my ‘signature painting’ and titled it “running with wolves.’ It went to exhibit and one of my customers commented that my painting reminded of the book/tape called ‘running with wolves.’ I borrowed her tape and listened to an excerpt from the book which I didn’t know existed. I was so amazed to hear my painting described by the author. She was not talking about my painting, but her words described just what I had painted. Are we all connected?

Wolf is the great communicator. All his body postures mean something. Fascinating. Really, we humans convey everything with our body postures. It’s just that we don’t realize it. People who know dogs take in the body postures and know just what their dog is up to. I find that people who have never been around dogs usually misread a dog’s intentions.
