space-tThe lady on the left is actually becoming a flock of birds flying, while the one on the right is merging with the building and the landscape.

A brilliant light flashes out of the bird woman, as a man pounds the wall, symbolic of the breakdown of all things in the material world, to another form.

space-tThe term sprite is a broad term referring to a number of supernatural legendary creatures. The term is generally used in reference to elf-like creatures, including fairies, and similar beings (although not earth beings).

A water sprite (also called a water fairy or water faery) is a general term for an elemental spirit associated with water, according to alchemist Paracelsus. Water sprites are said to be able to breathe water or air, and in some cases, can fly. They are mostly harmless unless threatened.

These creatures exist in mythology of various groups. Ancient Greeks knew water nymphs in several types such as naiads (or nyads), which guarded the fresh water bodies for the gods, These fairies are very joyful spirited and cannot be insulted or emotionally hurt, while Slavic mythology knows them as vilas.

In elemental classifications, water sprites should not be confused with other water creatures considered to be “corporeal beings” such as selkies and mermaids.

The basic eight are all represented on the light side

She is guided by a long satin fabric towards a new and brighter world. The representations of the I Ching and some eastern principles make up many of the pictorial symbols on the light side.

  • The creative – Heaven
  • The receptive – Earth
  • The arousing – Thunder
  • The abysmal -Water
  • Keeping still – Mountain
  • The gentle – Wind and wood
  • The clinging – Fire
  • The joyous – Lake

The joyous lake mist gives rise to the lotus flower.  From ancient times the lotus has been a divine symbol in Asian traditions.

Most deities of Asian religions are depicted as seated on a lotus flower. In Buddhist symbolism, the lotus represents purity of the body, speech and mind as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. According to legend, Gautama Buddha was born with the ability to walk and lotus flowers bloomed everywhere he stepped.

In the classical written and oral literature of many Asian cultures the lotus is present in figurative form, representing elegance, beauty, perfection, purity and grace, being often used in poems and songs as an allegory for ideal feminine attributes.

space-tMany Greek people recognized the major gods and goddesses: Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Apollo, Artemis, Aphrodite, Ares, Dionysus, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Athena, Hermes, Demeter, Heracles, Hestia, Asclepius and Hera though philosophies such as Stoicism and some forms of Platonism used language that seems to posit a transcendent single deity.

Different cities often worshipped the same deities, sometimes with epithets that distinguished them and specified their local nature.

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus.

Because of her beauty, other gods feared that their rivalry over her would interrupt the peace among them and lead to war, so Zeus married her to Hephaestus, who, because of his ugliness and deformity, was not seen as a threat. Aphrodite had many lovers—both gods, such as Ares and men, such as Anchises. She played a role in the Eros and Psyche legend and later was both Adonis’s lover and his surrogate mother. Many lesser beings were said to be children of Aphrodite.

Aphrodite is also known as Cytherea (Lady of Cythera) and Cypris (Lady of Cyprus) after the two cult sites, Cythera and Cyprus, which claimed to be her place of birth. Myrtle, doves, sparrows, horses and swans were said to be sacred to her. The ancient Greeks identified her with the Ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor.

The gods and goddesses, as well as various mortals, were invited to the marriage of Peleus and Thetis (the eventual parents of Achilles). Only the goddess Eris (Discord) was not invited, but she arrived with a golden apple inscribed with the word kallistēi (“to the fairest one”), which she threw among the goddesses. Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena all claimed to be the fairest, and thus the rightful owner of the apple.

The goddesses chose to place the matter before Zeus, who, not wanting to favor one of the goddesses, put the choice into the hands of Paris. After bathing in the spring of Mount Ida (where Troy was situated), the goddesses appeared before Paris. Having been given permission by Zeus to set any conditions he saw fit, Paris required the goddesses to undress before him to be evaluated. (Alternatively, the goddesses themselves chose to disrobe.) Still, Paris could not decide, as all three were ideally beautiful, so the goddesses resorted to bribes.

Hera tried to bribe Paris with control over all Asia and Europe, while Athena offered wisdom, fame, and glory in battle, and Aphrodite offered the most beautiful mortal woman in the world as a wife and he accordingly chose her. This woman was Helen, who was, unfortunately for Paris, already married to King Menelaus of Sparta. The other two goddesses were enraged by this and through Helen’s abduction by Paris, they brought about the Trojan War.

I finished this work after I returned from my vacation in Greece.

Return of the Goddess

AA220920-Goddess

Ancient Greek Goddess whose devotees have gathered to witness the return of the Goddess

A ruined temple dedicated to an ancient Greek goddess, devotees are gathered to witness the return of the goddess herself.  She is happy to see her followers. They waited a long time for her reappearance since the destruction of the temple in a time before this, now in a distant time. She has reappeared to impart wisdom and beauty.

Mystery of Love

AA220916-MLove

As we gaze into each others eyes we see our light within.

This is a cave setting and in the cave are many symbols, relating to their love. This painting also has strong still life elements as where we see a rose, a cup and a vase.

You can see what he is thinking, these are memories from his past.  The hearts are in his mind and they’re coming out of the top of his head. As these men (aspects of himself) carry hearts, some carry only a torch, some carry a heart and a torch.

The lady is essentially doing the same thing on the other side, framing a woman with glowing eyes and the light of a candelabra.

As they hold hands their arms seem to be dematerializing to polygons, those progressively become smaller and jewel-like and move towards the light which is now penetrating the table.

On the table a pink rose, a symbol for passion and love. The vase (and of course), the cup of the elements made of Ruby, Agate, Lapis, Lazuli and Amethyst. The base of the cup is emerald with a gold  handle.

This is all occuring on a mahogany table.

A “Kings” bed looms floating above the terrain with its rope ladder dropped as if to call them to love.

Alaska in Hawaii

AA220901-AinH space-tThe lasting connection between Alaska and Hawaii is like a rope made of many strings. Alaska and Hawaii are the last of 31 territories that applied for and achieved statehood, both admitted in 1959. They are also the only two states not bordered by another state, likewise no interstate highway connects them to any other state.

But the ties go deeper by example, Hawaii’s famous Humpback whales migrate back and forth, vacationing in the lovely bay between Maui and Lanai, only to return to the Gulf of Alaska in early fall.

Likewise many people consider both their home state, living part-time in each. Both Alaska and Hawaii boast a rich history of native peoples. They each represent extremes in United States weather from the tropical to extreme sub-zero temperatures in parts of Alaska.

Represented here are the glorious blues of Hawaii’s tropical waters, and the unforgettable blues of Alaska’s incredible glaciers. Both extremes of water, set against the trademark blue skies that make this world so very unique.

Another notable extreme, Hawaii’s warm tropical waters are heavy with salt, where Alaska’s glaciers represent the largest reservoir of freshwater in America.

Commissioned in the late 80’s, by a salmon fisherman living in Hawaii, who fishes all summer in Alaska. This piece attempts to bring together the glory of these two American extremes, by way of a window with a view out to an Alaskan glacier, floating a top of the water of an Hawaiian tropical coastal scene.

Emerge In Time

AA220908-Time

space-tAs the camel emerges from the window of time and inner-dimensionality is surrounding all of us, the light is pronounced. The camel changes and the fishes reshaping have all been part of a great big plan of the multi dimensional creator that cannot be created or destroyed, only changed to another form.

Egyptian Enigma

AA220907-EEnigma

space-tThrough a civilization whose primary orientation was mystical, whose art forms were exquisite, whose culture was unique inter dimensionality crosses all borders timeless mystery is revealed, gateways to super consciousness are opened.

~Andrew Annenberg

As the sun sets on an ancient time, Egyptian Enigma represents a coalescence of past present and future. From the center of the world the temple of time emerges energizing the sacred structures of ancient Egypt, the greatest of megalithic culture of the world.

No other culture has inspired more art forms or encouraged the evolution of the soul. a prime focus for this civilization was to bring about fourth dimensional consciousness through environments of stars in the spheric force fields useful believed for lifting mortal man out of his all-too mortal mire.

Arguably, Egypt is the pinnacle of what may have been an even greater civilization Atlantis. Today we are just beginning to recognize the magnitude of expanded realities brought forth at the time of Egypt’s greatness.

With this work I am bringing together components of architectural archaeological and mythological elements into a Mandella like composition. These symbolic elements woven together purposefully in the painting  are worthy of scrutiny.

space-tAs we go from the left of the painting with the best of the cat goddess of happiness, animals from the earthly representatives of God in the pantheon of Egyptian mythology, when a cat died Egyptians would shave their eyebrows in mourning.

Along that same side we see Setis earrings, a gold pendant, the scarab and the sacred baboons. The scarab is  the symbol of the sun God. Egyptians were familiar with the site of the beetle rolling a ball on the ground, this action suggested to them that the invisible power which rolled the sun daily across the sky could be represented pictorrialy as a scarab.

The mirror symbolic of the reflection of one’s self on the handle is a representation of the goddess Hathor interpreted as the horn cow goddess of love, happiness, dance and music. Also on the right we see the gold Lotus cup.

Ices which is depicted on the wall mural and wife Osiris looking across at the column which depicts her son Horis.

Aunk is the symbol for eternal all pervading life movement of time and space.  Adorning the Ankh is a little scarab with the sun disk. The hand is a multidimensional in or out of separate realities kind of symbol.

The gold statue of Sauquett, is a goddess associated with childbirth, nursing, control of magic and healing.  The scorpion symbol on her head represents the potential to heal.  A Crocodile named Sobeck wearing ram horns and Maat’s ostrich plumes, which is showing sobecks link with the order.

The crocodile is one of the most feared ferocious animals the Egyptians had to contend with, they mummified many of them which I saw in Egypt.

Alabaster vase with the eternal flame symbol for spiritual strength necessary to conquer lower nature and gain the secret of life eternal.

In the distance I see three pyramids from front to back: the largest is Khufu pyramid, Khafre, and Menkaure. A gold mummy of King Tutankhamen, a human spinx represents big bridge between higher worlds in underworlds rising through the medium of water.

The mummies crown features Nekhbt the vulture goddess and the cobra representing kundalini rising in the Chakras among others. The mummy is holding the Krook and flail, one of the symbols held by Egyptian Kings in coronation ceremonies, in the emblems of the goal of the God Osiris additionally represented in the underworld.

The torch bearers or tomb robbers are fervently searching for treasure even though there are jewels and artifacts all around.

At the bottom we see a statue of Osiris and across from him is Anubus who is the Jackle headed God of mummification. A shadow is emerging out of the light doorway which is the shadow of the Pharaoh as he enters the underworld. The whole bottom area being a representation of the so-called underworld.

And below the underworld is a representation of the exploration of what we saw: yet another earlier and older civilization in Abidos, Egypt where we viewed a much older temple 50 feet down under the sand now uncovered, for the whole world to see.
