Annual Holiday Open Studios

Holiday Open Studios Starts this Weekend


Lately I have been working through the Wisdom Mandala and my art through the images that have been emerging onto wood and canvas.

However!
Not everything is visionary and esoteric! 
In celebration of the season we are once again opening up the studio for the Holidays!


Aside from Corvids and Mandalas, I have some lovely whimsical pieces. "The Seed" and "Horse Dance I & II"  (11 x14 inches, mixed media.) Images are below.

"A Seed"
Horse Dance I


  
Horse Dance II
 I also have a variety of greeting cards with popular images from the past as well as some new ones that are unique to my way of looking at the world. 

If you want art but have a small budget, decorate your refrigerator with post card size magnetic prints! 

Come join us at the Sawtooth for Small Business Saturday and for every weekend leading up to Christmas.

Painting #3 of the Wisdom Dakinis

Latest Addition to the Dakini Paintings


I have continued to travel through the Mandala stopping at Fire and the South.
Magnetizing, alluring, discerning: the qualities of the Embodied Feminine Wisdom of this direction. Like the other finished pieces, images were taken from those women that I found somehow embody the positive qualities of the elemental direction.

The journey through the Wisdom Mandala Continues 


"Wisdom of Equanimity" oil on Canvas 34" X 40"

This is the second in five paintings on the divine feminine found in the Mandala of the Dakinis.
The position on the Mandala is south and the element associated with the image is Earth.

Journey through the Wisdom Mandala

Dear fellow travelers and art lovers:
I have been inspired to create paintings and collages these past few months from meditations on the divine feminine through the work of Lama Tsultrim Allione. These paintings and collages incorporate my interpretations of the 5 Wisdom Dakinis and their physical, psychic, emotional and elemental qualities. All pieces are open to your own personal experiences and some may turn out to be interactive. Please stay tuned for postings of finished works as they emerge. 

All new work will be available for viewing and purchase at the Berkeley Artisans Holiday Open Studios.

ALBATROSS movie by Chris Jordan Finally in Release!

I Have Been Waiting for the Release of this 

movie for a long time!

ALBATROSS by Chris Jordan has been in the making for many years and is a lyrical, heartbreaking documentary on the plight of the Albatross on Midway Island and the Pacific Gyre. The human romance with all things made of plastic has created an environmental crisis of staggering proportions in the middle of the Pacific Ocean...and the canary in the coal mine is the residents of Midway Island and other Islands were many species of Albatross breed and raise their young. They cannot differentiate between floating plastic debris, which extends for miles and miles, and their natural food of squid and fish so they fish out the plastic, take it back to their nests and feed it to their young with tragic results.
Please watch the screening on July 12 or download the movie for free if you cannot make it to the screening. Support efforts to stop the use of throw away plastic and donate to organizations that are involved in Ocean cleanup!
ALBATROSS MOVIE


This labor of love by Chris Jordan was the inspiration for art on this terrible ongoing tragedy in 2014 and to this day...
