A spirit wolf.

Upon a client’s request I painted this wolf from one of my earlier miniatures. I would prefer to create an entirely new painting because I have more fun doing a new one……but. This painting was in the spirit of a commission for someone who really wanted this wolf to serve as her guardian and she wanted a larger version. The results are just fine and I think he will do the job for her. I think that the eyes of this wolf are more intense than in the miniature wolf.

This is the aceo miniature.

A female gray wolf at rest. They don’t have the same mind chatter that we do.

A spirit wolf. Healer to man. She travels silently and restores spiritual and physical balance.

In the background I painted a medicine shield….befitting a healer. The gold spirals are a symbol for the path of life. Sometimes I know what the entire painting will include before I begin. But, more often than not, I ‘doodle’ my way the the finish. The subject most often tells me what to paint….especially after I finish the eyes. No rhyme or reason to this. I have learned…. and long ago…not to angst over the painting. That way I don’t paint it to death. I would say it’s a big no no when using watercolor.

The spiral is the native american symbol for life’s journey. One would be wise to be aware of balance in all things.

I found this in my drafts so I decided to post it. This was painted a year ago. Things change.

Will this wolf survive the never ending attempts by humankind to eradicate the species?
