This is a painting of a huge old climbing rose named, Constance Spry. It bloomed in the springtime at our old house out in the country. Although the rose is pink, I painted it in moonlight. Southern homes in the summer evenings... creaking screen doors, the tinkling of ice cubes, cicadas, ravenous bats chasing mosquitos in the sky... love and sensuality.

Independence was my response to people telling me that all my paintings (that I was painting at the time) were "dark". It was a struggle, but a challenge for me at that time because I was really enjoying the beauty of color (I still do!). But the painting was a wonderful success. It is full of life and struggle. 

It is a painting about liberation... my liberation and yours!

The Southern Catalpa

Oil on Canvas

48"X36"  (1½" gallery wrapped)

$1680.00

The ancient Catalpa has been found in fossils millions of years old. Its large heart-shaped leaves are bright green, and have the mystifying characteristic of secreting nectar. The tree's leaves are the sole source of food for Catalpa Sphinx moth larvae. The tree puts forth great panicles of white/lavender trumpet-shaped flowers in June or early in July. These cover the tree so thickly as almost to conceal the full grown leaves. The long thin bean-like pods often stay attached to the naked tree during wintertime, and make haunting rattling sounds in the winds.

 

Kundalini

Kundalini

$1680.00

Kundalini (Sanskrit kuṇḍalinī, कुण्डलिनी, "coiled one"), in yogic theory, is a primal energy, or shakti, located at the base of the spine. Different spiritual traditions teach methods of "awakening" kundalini for the purpose of reaching spiritual enlightenment. Kundalini is described as lying "coiled" at the base of the spine, represented as either a goddess or sleeping serpent waiting to be awakened. In modern commentaries, Kundalini has been called an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force, or "mother energy or intelligence of complete maturation".

Kundalini awakening can result in deep meditation, enlightenment and bliss. This awakening involves the Kundalini physically moving up the central channel to reach within the Sahasrara Chakra at the top of the head. In physical terms, the Kundalini experience is a feeling of electric current running along the spine.
