Although this piece was created as an abstract, with absolutely no conscious bias towards a particular theme or direction, it is apparent to me that the influence of Autumn and the drawing in of the dark nights has made its presence felt…

“Samhain (October 31) is one of the principal festivals of the Celtic calendar. Samhain celebrations have survived in several guises as a festival dedicated to the harvest and the dead. It is still the custom in some areas to set a place for the dead at the Samhain feast. According to Celtic lore, the boundaries between the world of the living and the world of the dead become thinner at this time, allowing spirits and other supernatural entities to pass between the worlds to socialize with humans.

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!

    you are very welcome! your work, particularly this one, reminds me of my own in that you have come to a meaning in an intuitive way. when an image asserts itself into out conscious reality (in this case, via the process of painting), it leads you to it’s intent…or meaning…I call it ‘working backwards’. the felt experiance has led you to the conclusions that you have made above….I just love the process of discovery…don’t you?!
