Art : New Projects
This piece is called Carousel and has (as do most of my pieces) a story written about it. It is a companion piece to Corners (below) and both are oil on board in the final version. "Corners" is a suspense-filled story about a little girl named Salome and was published in An Indigo's Journey.
This unicorn/phoenix mandala is one of a series of mandalas which came to me, while I was studying archetypes and reading Jung. I have done quite a bit of work around mandalas and have come to realize their therapeutic qualities and their ability to unite the right and left brain.
The above is one of a series of images I have finished It looks slightly elongated here. They were a series of new/revised archetypes intended to form a new mythology. Joseph Campbell has said that we are simply repeating images and a new mythology is needed The archetypes which came to me are being worked on now into an entirely new series of images possibly for a deck of Tarot cards These new images are exciting and positive and they show up the deceptions of our current mentality and how to change things for the better. Here we see state and religious sanctioned traditional marriage, which is bound by strict laws and does not allow for flexibility and growth for both individuals.
Here is another in the series of the images mentioned above and the third is below. It depicts the hero's journey. Here the hero receives instruction and below he connects with nature and thereby his own energy.
