Ossian at Swayambu

AA160515-Ossianspace-t

A filmmaker and friend Thomas Anderson commissioned this small work to be a souvenir and portrait of the western boy who became a Tibetan Tolku. Thomas made a film called Ossian which was shown on PBS TV.

Ossian begged his mother to move into the monastery to become a monk. She was open to it if she could live nearby, which she did. The boy named Ossian is standing in the front of the picture. In back are his friend and his teacher, with Swayambhu temple in back.

Anointed by his devoutly Buddhist parents as a candidate for monkhood, the film shows Ossian’s initiation into the order, counterbalanced with shots of this otherwise very typical American kid. The practice of consigning very young children to a lifetime of service to Buddha has come under fire in recent years.

Sadhu Samadhi

Sadhuspace-t

My journey to Asia was unforgettable. Nepal was my main focus and I was anxious to see everything.

The visit coincided with a Hindu Shiva-Ratri festival in Kathmandu, where I  met many sadhu’s from India, making a pilgrimage to the sacred Bagmati river and Pashupatinath temple complex.

The  amazing face and colorful costume of a Sadhu I met, led to this painting some years later.

A friends comment on this: “It is a major painting just for the achievement of painting a very wise man with such technical expertise, that his wisdom pierces the eyes of the beholders, me especially and FORCES me to spiritually evolve”.

space-tIn Hinduism, sādhu (“holy man”) denotes an ascetic, wandering monk. Although the vast majority of sādhus are yogīs, not all yogīs are sādhus. The sādhu is solely dedicated to achieving mokṣa (liberation), the fourth and final aśrama (stage of life), through meditation and contemplation of brahman. Sādhus often wear saffron-colored clothing, symbolizing their sanyāsa (renunciation)

Sadhus are sanyasi, or renunciates, who have left behind all material attachments and live in caves, forests and temples all over India and Nepal.

This picture is framed in a gold, semi-ornate frame.

Mountain Hall

An open hand in the fields reaches out; our bird is free and will continue to hatch her eggs of life.

space-tAs the bird of the heart arises from the columned hall, she sees the clouded mountain, the fertile landscape as She arises from the eggs of life.

Une Femme

AA220927-UneF

A complete woman, “Une Femme” self-sufficient, a whole universe.

One enters the painting from the bottom where the Lions Deleo aspect stand as gatekeepers telepathically reading the intentions of the approaching person. They are symbols of strength and endurance.

The Lions, temple and Gothic cathedral windows represent three lower Chakras; power, sensation and security. In addition, the Alhambra temple indicates not only the sacredness of the womb, but also the continuous practice of established religions, to use sexuality as a means of domination and exploitation. The same idea is expressed by the Gothic cathedral windows which represent the ovaries.

The prisms that the Lions hold in their claws symbolizes the analytical mind. Significantly the prism points to the entrance of the holy temple. No one can enter this temple unless they have gone through scrutinizing analysis. Thus, the prism connects intellect with emotions.

The round dome (the omphalos, the navel of the world) is shown at the hare (solar plexus) as the center power station.

One passes through the fire of purification to rise to a higher heart chakra represented by the green Emerald aglow with the fire of love. From here the route is open to cosmic consciousness.

At the throat chakra we find a Greek temple symbol of western culture of its sculptural art, drama and poetry.

Above it is the great pyramid of Egypt, the epitome of all our mathematical knowledge about the cosmos-knowledge once lost but now rediscovered by the scientists.  The the pyramid is also the computer and crystal we all bear within that enables us to tap into the cosmic ocean of consciousness unseen and luminous.

The hands and arms indicate the paths to truth. The hands are covered by mazes indicating learning as a trial and error process. There are two paths to the top; the Golden Yang is tougher more adventurous. The silver Yin is slower and safer, step-by-step both lead up.

Monets Muse

AA130503-MMusespace-t

I contemplated creating a metamorphic work using a recognizable or famous person as the subject. I chose Monet the Painter and found some old photographs of his face.

The large beard facilitated the portrait to mix between the two worlds.
The large 1860’s dresses of the women of that era worked well for the illusion and the beard.

In his earlier days Monet spent more time in Paris and this is the era I chose. This is a rainy night in Paris and the café Guerbois hosted many of the impressionist artists (lower right).

In the lower left Monet can be seen returning from a day of painting in the countryside. Which was His preferred method of painting, later in His life.
