Spirit Rising (1999) - Acrylic on Canvas 24"x84"

This painting of Spirit was created in 1999, and at the time, I believed it was a self-portrait, representing my own consciousness rising (represented by the horse beginning to rise into the frame.) Years later, however, I began to realize this could be representative of our collective spirit rising in consciousness.

This was a personal inspired image, which came forth at the same time I was painting The Spirits Rising. In it, I have represented my ethereal muse, Spirit, with an eagle feather mounted at the base of his forehead. The eagle feather depicted was one I had recently been gifted by a Native American, which I painted to commemorate, and re-gifted. I believe it represented a time of great guidance from the animal spirits, and in particular, the Eagle. As I felt Spirit was a representation of Self, this was a spiritual self portrait.

This was a triptych created in an inspired moment. Similarly to the time when the painting “Spirit Rising” came through, I had intended different images for these paintings. In the literal 12th hour, I had painted over all of my previous imagery with black paint, in order to start fresh. As my hand swirled a white pastel on the right side canvas to explore what wanted to emerge, I suddenly entered a flow state, and the basic sketch for the horse on this panel burst forward within seconds. I leapt for joy in the moment I finished this first horse sketch, and continued to finish these three paintings on that one night. I felt they were a further representation of our rising consciousness in the world… this time highlighting the individual spirits rising in consciousness.

This is a commissioned painting of a horse named Zorro, painted in Asheville, NC on site in the loft above his stall. Zorro is an Andalusian, and I feel a beautiful real life representation of the horse Spirit, who I have seen in my mind’s eye since I was 12 years old. That is why I entitled this painting, “Spirit is Here.”

"The I of Love" (2007) - Acrylic on Canvas 18"x24"
"The I of Love" (2007) - Acrylic on Canvas 18"x24"

This was another painting which flowed through, created as a focus on the soulful expression in the eye of a horse. I called it the “I” of love, to represent the source of love being the “Self” within, but evident through the eye itself. This painting was sold at a charity auction during a horse show in Boise, Idaho in 2010.
