My Spirits of the Heart cohorts and I have been working on our next exhibit project.  "White Women Listening" will be a global reflection of the indigenous peoples, their beliefs and traditions, co-relating how we are all connected with similar needs, dreams and realities.  
 The project is well into the planning stages.  In between filling out grant applications, sourcing sustainably produced, earth and people friendly materials we are drawing and painting small studies in preparation for the larger pieces to come. 

Here is one of my studies, hot off my easel:


White Women Listening:  Exploring Connections  Acrylic on cradled board, 12 x 12"

This piece explores the symbology and beliefs of the ancient indigenous people and cultures around the world, and the threads which connect us all.

I will drop this piece off at our ongoing Euphoria Exhibit at Euphoria Smoothies on Whitewood Avenue in New Liskeard, Ontario, where it will be available for purchase.
