Renewal

Sunset over Wolf Lake. We are meant to touch the ground beneath us, to dip our hands into cool waters on pristine shores. We are meant to experience the quiet renewal that comes after a day in pine wood forests, the exhaustion of physical toil bringing us back to our bodies, our strength. The air is still for a time, when the world hovers in the gloaming. The spirit of the Thunderbird rises high into the night, growing like a tree, reaching out to our hearts to plant deep roots, leaving us with the seed inside us, hoping for fertile ground, a tender soul.

The "listening tree"....

Yes, the listening tree. What you might be interested in knowing is that this was based on a sketch I drew about two years ago. I should scan it in one day.

I came across the sketch as I was peparing for the April show and while I had no idea how to paint it at the time I drew it, I found that now I knew just what to do.
