Silent Observer
 
 
The Sioux Indian believes the owl is the silent keeper of wisdom.  This barred owl sees and knows the truth.  His ability to find his way in the darkest night and bring back nourishment for himself and others is the foundation of his power.
 

Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind and spirit.... What are the fruits of silence? They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character.” 

Ohiyesa, Wahpeton Santee Sioux

Artist Thoughts
 
 
"Owls have very large and expressive eyes.  I knew I had to create a kind of shiny wetness into this owls' eyes if I was going to bring life to the whole painting.  I was very happy with the result."

Private Eyes
 
The jaguar tends to be a loner, very comfortable with himself and often lives a solitary existence.  The jaguar is very elusive and a good observer of their surroundings.  They are at home in the dark and have excellent night vision.
 
The jaguar's powerful limbs carry them for hundreds of miles searching for prey.  They are an agile climber and Native Americans believe that they show us how to attain goals through flexibility and steadfastness.  Unlike many other big cats, the jaguar has no rivals
- no other predator can compete with this powerful cat.

Artist Thoughts
 
 
"In this painting, I decided to concentrate on the expression in the eyes of this cat.  My goal was to capture the calm but alert expression in this hunters face.  Cats have such a powerful sense of focus, even when relaxed."

Polar Seclusion 
 
To the Eskimo and Inuit peoples, the polar bear is a source of both physical and spiritual nourishment.  The female bear often remains secluded with her young, protecting them from other bears.  They are respected for their ability to find sustenance in barren landscapes, and their solitude existence.  They are intelligent and fearless.
 
The white color of the polar bear is very significant, for it represents purity of spirit.  On a spiritual level, the polar bear is regarded as the embodiment of the spirit of the North, an animal who possesses ancient wisdom and has shamanic powers.

Artist Thoughts
 
 
"Solid colors in nature, are really made up of many colors.  These colors are not always noticed by everyone, but they are what give the image three dimensions.  Proper application of these colors in a painting, can give a painting the same dimensional illusion."

Stoic
 
Stoic – “Apparently or professedly indifferent to pleasure or pain, free from passion, unmoved by joy or grief, and submissive to natural law.”  
 
Eagles are believed to be the messengers from heaven, the communicators between Wakan Tanka and the Earth.  They remind us of our own ability to soar to new heights. 
 
the coyote is sly; so is the Indian. The eagle is the same. That is why the Indian is always feathered up; he is a relative to the wings of the air.” ---
Black Elk (1863-1950) Oglala Sioux Holy Man

Artist Thoughts
 
 
"I began this painting early in the summer of 2001, and I completed it just a few weeks after the World Trade Center came down.  For this reason, this painting has a deeper meaning to me than I could ever have imagined when I started it."

The Protector
 
To Native Americans, the grizzly bear represents courage, strength, protection and life. If an Indian were given a name that included "bear", he knew that the tribe thought that he was brave.  The grizzly bear was thought to be placed on earth by Wakan Tanka to protect all of our relations.
 
  The grizzly teaches the importance of taking a stand and commanding power.  The grizzly has a heightened sense of awareness, because of its large size, the grizzly represents an especially keen sense of knowing.

Artist Thoughts
 
 
"I wanted this painting to bring the viewer a sense of the power of this bear.  By placing this aggressive expression in such a close-up format, this painting is not only powerful, but it is compelling as well."

The Challenge
 
African elephants are the largest of earth's four leggeds.  The clash of two of these weathered beasts in front of the the back drop of the darkening storm clouds, reminds us of the powerful changes that can come about when we confront our own challenges in life.
 
  Those challenges in life that seem the most overwhelming become the most powerful life changing forces.  These opportunities test our courage and abilities, and by not turning away from the challenge, we gain self- confidence, and often find a new path in life in the process.

Artist Thoughts
 
 
"This painting was my first attempt on such a large scale, to create a texture other than fur and feathers.  I wanted to challenge myself to create the various textures found on the elephant, and still give these massive animals emotion."

Safe Haven
 
 
Tiger is the symbol of darkness and the new moon.  The tiger represents new adventure, passion and power.  People who relate to the tiger are very sensual, passionate and devoted parents.  Their best work is done at night.  Tigers are associated with water and have all the properties of the element of Water –
 
Go Forward With Courage -

When you are in doubt, be still, and wait; when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
So long as mists envelop you, be still; be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
-- as it surely will.
Then act with courage."

Chief White Eagle, Ponca  (1800's to 1914)
