Dreaming in paint for the Yukon…

From the depths of the waters that flow, the scale of the mountains on high, the wildness that refuses to be tamed, there resides a reservoir of strength that awaits any on a quest of seeking to know oneself.

It beckons the hungering spirit. It tests us to know where we are; where I end and you begin and to set the boundaries between while honouring the truth we are all connected; to each other, to LAND-SEA-SKY and every breath in between.

Spell of the Yukon—with passages of time abutting the forces of nature there is a bridge; a place where the stillness offers moments of reflection. Where have you been… Where are you now… Who are you now… What have you learned… What flecks of gold are offered to you now…What passion remains undiscovered, untapped…

The answers can be found in the slowing down, in considering life’s mysteries and heeding your own counsel.

It was a slow and labourious start with tests and a failed experiment, then finally it began to come together… dreaming each night of the mix of paint and the flow… the blending and scraping.

My first Canada Legacy series piece complete! Come on over and check out the information behind Spell of the Yukon.

Set on a 24 x 30″ panel – the painting is inlaid with an inch of black paint framing the art.

Ah… Yukon was glorious to explore and now thoroughly enmeshed in my soul.

Next up – Northwest Territories! Whoo hoo! I’m excited to begin anew!
