Totem #1 is the first of a series of pieces that represent an animal attached to a human figure, like if they are part of the same body. They can also be animal totems, if you prefer. The Totems carry also a very simple concept: our deep attachment to Nature as one single thing. In those pieces, I intend to make the human head always black and white and naturalist, while the animal is colorful and filled with abstract shapes.

    Funny you should start this series with the owl on the woman’s head. I keep painting owls either over a woman’s head or a part of her head. Owl must be wanting to get our attention right now!!

    I like that you take the time to describe your painting. The totem reference is very evocative, and the abstractions remind me of some of our totems here in the Northwest.
    Beautifully done.
