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.

Free Tibet

AA160504-Tibet

“The Tibetans are as free as any people I’ve ever encountered”

 

In 1981 my friend, a filmmaker and I wandered into a full moon Losar Festival, a major gathering of Tlbetans wearing different costumes from from all parts of the country. In a special moment in time, we noticed a little group in the street in front of the stupa named “Bodhinath”. As they began to sing and play Tibetan songs, a small crowd gathered to enjoy their performance. My friend and I were both pleased and excited and immediately took pictures of them.

The moment lasts no more than five minutes, but it’s not something you see every day.  When it ended everyone dispersed, but we stayed at the festival.  My friend included his pictures in a documentary film for PBS.

space-tI was and still am particularly fascinated with the uniqueness of the people, the history in the faces, the grandeur of the country. Over the years when I looked at the photographs and now at this painting, I remember how I felt at the time – faraway from home, a long distance from America.

Fourteen years later, when I decided to paint this scene, I changed the setting to the Himalayas (which I trekked to a few days after the Losar Festival) and include the Dalai Lama in the background. My still photos became the inspiration for this painting. The photos weren’t that fabulous but the potential for the painting was definitely there.

Tibet is a beautiful and fascinating part qf the world with an enigmatic history. I call the painting “Free Tibet” because I want to see Tibet free of repression.

At the same time, the Tibetans are as free as any people I’ve ever encountered.”

The Enchantment

AA220922-Enchant

space-tThis painting incorporates many elements of the Celtic culture and the magical Fairy realms. Tiny fairies make up the twirling colors of the rainbow.

Part of this painting reveals Merlin’s triumphant emergence from a crystal cave, where he was trapped by a magic spell.  While he slept the world of Camelot struggled in darkness without his guidance and influence. Ultimately it was the power of love that brought him back.

The rainbow colors below the cauldron form a stem, pouring forth the vibrational attributes that merge heavenly elements into the earth. A god dips the tiny men into the cauldron and they emerge as higher, more aware beings who possess the powers of divine vision, becoming God-men.

The village girl near the oak tree comes as a representation of Ipona, Goddess of the horses, bringing her cornucopia of abundant fruits to the land and the people.

“This latest painting speaks of the beauty and wonder of another era of times past, in my series of Lost Worlds.”

space-tIn this version, Oberon is the king of all the fairies in William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, who is feuding with his wife Titania, the queen of the fairies. They are fighting over a changeling child that Oberon wants to raise as his aide. Titania wants to keep the child because he is the child of Titania’s mortal follower who died and she wants to raise the child for her follower.

Oberon tricks Titania into loving Bottom, using a special flower that makes you meet true love at first sight. Furious that Titania will not give him the child, he puts juice from a magical flower into her eyes while she is asleep.

The effect of the juice is that it will cause Titania to fall in love with the first thing she sees. Titania awakens and finds herself madly in love with Bottom, a weaver that has been given a donkey’s head by Puck.

Meanwhile, two couples have entered the forest: lovers Hermia and Lysander are pursued by Demetrius, who also loves Hermia and Helena, who loves Demetrius.

Oberon sends Puck to put some of the juice in Demetrius’s eyes to make him fall in love with Helena, after he witnesses him rejecting her. When Puck puts the love potion on Lysander by mistake and then on Demetrius, Helena finds herself loved by two men and confusion breaks out.

After Puck straightens out what he has done, and Demetrius discovers that he is really in love with Helena after all, Oberon looks upon Titania and her lover, Bottom and feels sorry for what he has done.

He reverses the spell and when Titania awakes the two reunite. This is where Annenbergs vision begins, when Oberon and Titania reunite in Love, all the fairies and elves celebrate their love.

Samarian Madonna

AA160525-Madonnaspace-t

One could say a Madonna is an idealized spiritual person and seeker of truth. The clear light She seeks can be found on the core level of her being.

Crossing the Samarian desert can be a hot, dry and  challenging journey. Seeking a woman for a model for a Madonna one came up in our life portrait drawing sessions who truly fit the archetype.
