  • Leopard Essence III/Artist Energy 2018
    Leopard Essence III/Artist Energy - Woman Warrior Coat Series: To empower women to overcome challenges in their daily lives. 
     
    As my Rwandan artist friend began to restore a benevolent environment to begin painting again I saw a coat of her ancestral patterns generating ribbons of cloth and woven beads which spoke to her own inner creative power and determination. Palm fronds grew from the creative spiritual side symbolizing victory and peace. It rested on the essence of leopard - the national animal of Rwanda.

    When near completion on this drawing of light and dark I reached an impasse and sat in silence. After a time I inexplicably picked up a salmon colored pencil and began to fill in the coat's heart center watching the warmth expand outwards. Words heard: "It is the combination of light and love that has the power to dispel darkness".

  • Solar Coat for Cleo

    Solar Coat for Cleo - Woman Warrior Coat Series: To empower women to overcome challenges in their daily lives. 
     
    A cluster of purple Irises grew up from the earth emitting a pale purple mist. The name “Cleo” was written in the air above the mist from which a sun emerged. As the sun passed through the name Cleo, the name was swept into the sun’s center where it remained. The sun continued to rise up into a coat of light suspended above the Irises until it reached the place where her heart would be. Then it generated a single cord of light that traveled far into the heavens above and into the earth below surrounded by Irises.

    Words heard: “Connection unbroken.”

  • Leopard Essence Coat - Study II
    2014

    Leopard Essence - Study II: After my Rwandan friend had completed a difficult life journey the flaming Leopard Coat became a coat of light with only a random leopard spot - the essence of Leopard. Five black shields in a basket weave pattern surrounded the coat. A group of warriors stood behind the coat with the understanding: "The Leopard Coat comes with the power of the ancestors". In doing research following these images I discovered the leopard is the national animal of Rwanda and black basket weave shields are a symbol of Rwandan royalty used to protect the royal drums.
