Goldfinch, dimensional paint and acrylic on canvas, 12"x12", 2015, includes the goldfinch, a symbol of the soul along with symbols for expansion of consciousness. The bird is in dimensional paint, which gives a sculptural element to the focal point of the painting.
“Safe” Acrylic and flashe on canvas, 16"x20" The third painting in my Sage series includes symbols of safety and protection — eyes, wings, arrows, an ancient protection rune, and even one used by witches to protect themselves from evil. The latin name for sage means safe and was the inspiration for the painting.
“Abaton” 16”x20” acrylic and flashe on canvas. Running through the middle of the painting is a stylized version of the Staff of Asclepius, which is used by many medical organizations around the world. Asclepius was a Greek god associated with healing and medicine. The abaton was the part of the temples of Asclepius where adherents slept to heal. The leaves in gold are sage whose Latin name means “safe.” The painting also includes many symbols for healing and protection.
