"Spotted Elk Pony" 
Oil on canvas with beadwork and elks teeth

private collector, Indiannapolis IN   

A part of the Calling of the Ponies series, Spotted Elk Pony demonstrates the renaissance concept of diagonal line usage and the ascension to divine grace. This usage collaborates European renaissance technique and Native American natural symbol, the Elk, a source of subsistence to the tribes. The Elk nation much like the buffalo is revered by the native American plains tribes and is also honored as a gift from the creator. As the spring brings life to the world after a long winters nap, the Elk herds bring new life among their nation.  These newborn elk are spotted and their presence represents new life, innocence and the hope for future generations.

"Entering a Journey"
18" x 24", Mixed Medium; acrylic, oil and beads on pre-stretched canvas
private collector, Sheridan WY     

“Entering a Journey” was composed in Southwestern Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes as part of an art project with several area high schools. This piece was designed to demonstrate to participants the coming of age and stepping into ones own space in the world. The decorated painted pony is stepping into a constructed journey of color, vision, truth, choice. The overall composition of the three beaded rectangles, painted horse, four squares and Eagle feather are reference to symbolic techniques of Renaissance painters and the usage of diagonal lines and levels of achievement in life.
