松島佛獅 matsushima lionhart
During my travels to Northern Japan 5 years ago, I encountered the Lion of Blue & Gold at Matsushima.  The experience thoroughly inspired my creative intuition.  My journey to Sendai begins next Monday, thus the time is appropriate to pay homage to the grand lion spirit, the beautiful city and its durable people.

earth once blue
a planet once pristine
until we tainted
where are we guiding the natural world 
the truth the reminder painted
-collective consciousness is necessary-

風神雷神 III
3ft X 8ft diptych   2013    mix media
It all stems from my encounter with Towaraya Sotatsu’s painting in Kyoto.  Shortly after I came across enormous statues of the pair guarding Tokugawa Ieyasu’s resting place in Nikko.  Ever since then, I’ve been deeply fascinated by Wind God & Thunder God.  Their presence expresses an unique duality that encompasses a sense of both contrast and harmony. Through this I realize if we see beyond conflict this difference may convey a greater balance.  And a clearer sense of unity.

divina
It has been recorded since before the dawn of time that spiritual leaders and healers were first dancers. Traditionally certain dances were used specifically for healing the body, mind, or spirit. These dances came from people who did not separate spirituality from every day life.
