Eyes of the Storm
EYES OF THE STORM
THE FIRST COLOURED PIECE REFLECTING CHANGE THROUGH
TRANSFORMATION FOR THE ARTIST. TELLING OF HOW LIFE LOOKED AT
THROUGH THE EYES OF THE PAST WILL ENSURE THE FUTURE 
WILL NEVER CHANGE.
AS LONG AS EXPERIENCES REMAIN A REFERENCE POINT.
HISTORY WILL REPEAT ITSELF.  AWAKENING BREAKS THROUGH
IMPRISONED BELIEFS, THE EAGLE CARRIES -STRENGTH, THE OWL -INSIGHT,
THE HAWK -AWARENESS, AND THE RAVEN -INTELLIGENCE.
MESSENGERS FROM THE CREATOR BRINGING
THE GIFT OF LOOKING AT LIFE WITH NEW EYES.

 Panthers
MOVING THROUGH DARKNESS
WHEN YOU CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE FROM WHAT'S ILLUSION OR SANE,
REALITY AND IMAGINATION SOON BECOME THE SAME,
ABANDONMENT, REJECTION, BETRAYAL ARE NEAR,
ARE YOU MY INSTINCTS OR ARE YOU MY FEAR,
IF I CHOOSE NOT TO HEAR YOU I WON'T HAVE TO FEEL,
IF I CHOOSE TO GO THROUGH YOU I KNOW I WILL HEAL,
A DREAM BRINGS THE WARNING OF THINGS TO COME,
MOVING THROUGH THE DARKNESS TO GET TO THE SUN.

 "This journey describes how abandoning one`s own instincts and rejecting one`s own feelings will ultimately lead to betraying one`s own self."
Graphite pencil, coloured pencil and pastel on illustration board.  21" x 21"

 


( WHO AM I.....WHY AM I HERE..... )
I`D DREAMT OF THE PLAINS WAR SHIRT WHEN IT APPEARED HOW IT PROUDLY HUNG,
IT WITNESSED THE LADY PIPE CARRIER SPEAKING IN SIOUX TONGUE,
SLIPPER`S MADE WITH HANDS THAT WORKED A LIFE HARD LIKE STONE,
MEMORIES OF LIFE`S LESSONS OR A CREATION OF MY OWN,
IS TIME REALLY ALL WE HAVE OR IS LIFE JUST A STATE OF CHANGE,
WE GIVE LIFE OUR MEANING AND WHEN WE SEE FIT WE REARRANGE,
STATUS, LABELS, TITLES,SYMBOLS, EGO, APPEARANCE, GREED,
EXISTING IN A WORLD OF RULES AND CONCEPTS OF WHICH WE`VE ALL AGREED,
THE GAME THAT`S PLAYED IS TIRESOME. PRETENDING IT`S NOT A LIE,
I`M REMINDED OF HOW IT FEELS TO BE ALIVE WHEN I HEAR A LOVED ONE`S CRY,
IF FEELING IS WHAT IS REAL AND EXPERIENCE IS WHAT WE DO,
HOW I EXPRESS IS THROUGH MY GIFT AND TO THIS I MUST BE TRUE,
THE ARTIST HE`S AN ILLUSION,HIS NATURE HE REFLECTS,
A CHANGELING,A SHAPESHIFTER, TRANSFORMING INTO WHAT HE CONNECTS,
HE IMITATES LIFE AROUND HIM, ADAPTING AS THE CHAMELEON HE`S MEANT TO BE,      
BECOMING HIS ENVIRONMENT PAINTING A PICTURE FOR THE WORLD TO SEE,
MY MOCCASIN`S AND MY WAR SHIRT LIVING ON A PAGE THROUGH THE COLOURS THEY BLEED, 
MAY I PRAY FOR MY ENEMIES AND TRY TO FORGIVE MYSELF IN HOPES MY SPIRIT CAN SOR FREE.
