Commission done for Kaz the Minotaur. This piece was a treat to work on giving me a chance to paint hoof stock and a water scene, something I don’t get to do very often. I do love her characters and was thrilled when she told me I would be painting her main character.
Original is 11x15 mixed media.
More than the redtail sees from above,
Longer than redwoods pass ring to ring.
Stronger than mountains lift up their stone,
Deeper than ocean wave voices can sing.
Born of the dawn and the sunset and dream,
I breathe the salt air and I harbor the flame.
Beginnings and endings all braided and bound,
Past present future all one and the same.
Memory of kindnesses echo in time,
Heartbeat percussion in blood and the bone.
Remember the moments and ones who have loved,
And I’ll play you the song of my soul and my home.
