2010 Abstract Acrylic on 140 lb. watercolour paper

From Native American Series 2nd tour

The Blessing given by the medicine man to the young couple that wish to be united in marriage. Many Native American tribes had different rites to unite couple in marriage…some very long, and made the warrior work hard and show his bravery…before given the honour of his bride in marrige.

As a self-taught working artist, I have always believed that we are all blessed with gifts. It’s up to us to recognize and develop them; to what extent we will use those gifts to benefit others that cross our path.

    are hopes on wings
    may the great father
    see you old, worn
    and together
    when his retun comes
    to take you home
    to this place of trials
    and joys of walking
    his endless fields

  • walt thank you sir for the support and your words always up lifting

    Oh Rey this beatiful painting is a blessing to us. I enjoyed reading the story behind this painting. I love how you have used white with the dove, their clothing beside the red and yellow earth tones. The bold black lines are dramatic and defining.There is a feeling of deep spirituality and connectivity in this work that I adore. I can feel the new couple’s excitement about their future and the medicine man giving them a blessing and his wisdom. Love the abstract qualities, the painterly texture. Another gorgeous work from your wonderful imagination dear Rey. xxx

  • dear partner thank you for your wonderful and inspiring compliment, you have a way with words, that makes my work more alive with your words thanks dear Anthea xxx
