Very excited about this work in progress- a perfect fit for me! My friend, Monique Alore, a powerful Shamanic healer, has asked me to co- create with her a mural in her healing room, to support her work with clients.
 
Wanting to reflect both the inner and outer life, I painted her a cross section of a cave interior on the lower left and a vista of fields and lakes on the upper right.  Within the cave (as womb) sits Monique in contemplation, creating her world! Roaming above are her power animals. The colors also reflect the inner and outer worlds.
 

Deep enriched colors within, and bright sparkling colors outside.

 
We also designed this to include a “Tromp’liel” aspect. The cave entrance will be adorned with a 3D skull mask (created by another artist and gifted to Monique in exchange for her services).  I look forward to posting finished photos of this mural as soon as I have finished it.

Sacred Circle Gift Shop, Tyendinaga Territory

 I was so happy to be asked by Charlene Maracle to conjure up signage
for her wonderful shop on Hwy 49.

The gifts she has in her cosy little space, are a blend of the sacred tools
of the Celtic Culture and the Aboriginal Culture.

The wordless signs were installed last November 2014, high on a sturdy frame in clear view of the highway. The visual language says it all…and more!

Mural in Toronto at St Cecilia’s Catholic School – Dec. 2014

St Cecilias Catholic School

I have been honored to paint depictions of the St’s in Catholic schools recently. I am learning a lot, as I research the lives of these advanced people. I am not a Christian, but I am open and respectful to this faith.

St Cecilias Catholic SchoolI learned that Cecilia was a young Italian woman who lived around 800 ACE. She was forced to marry against her will. Her own choice was to devote her life in service to others. As she walked down the aisle, she immersed herself so intensely into the music being played for her, that she went into trance and let the sacred sounds transport her. There in communion with the “Divine” she asked to be saved from this situation.

Magically, after her marriage ceremony was completed, her husband, after hearing her desire to devote her life to serve humanity, was so in awe of her that he supported her wish, agreed to not consummate the marriage and became her devotee, for the rest of his life. That is the potential in the power of great music.

With that inspiring story I began to sketch out the composition I had designed and soon called in the kid’s 2×2 to help block in the colors. As we worked I asked them what they knew of Cecilia (these were little kids, so not to be critical) since their school is named after this great Saint.

“Oh she is the women who built the school. Didn’t you know?” 

I had a wonderful time with these children and they were a great help to me in pulling together this mural, to help celebrate the school’s 100th anniversary.
