how she dreams

How she dreams is the second in a series of paintings inspired by Southern California. I'm not sure anyone would know by looking that this painting has anything whatsoever to do with California, but I know.


It's all about the energy underneath for me and how my heart feels when I think of being there.

This image began with the face of the Mother in the middle. The dreamer appeared below her, and then the small wisdom being.

The coyote was one of the last elements to come in, but he's important.

The coyote is the call of the dreamer.

The symbolism of coyote remains enigmatic, being both a trickster and a teacher...the coyote is a wise sage whose message comes indirectly...

There's a lot of Crosby, Stills & Nash in this painting, a little Gordon Lightfoot, and a good amount of Joni Mitchell, of course.

And there's my heart, open and whispering down secret cosmic highways.

My heart wanting what it wants, loving what it loves, allowing itself to be seen by the Mother, who knows how I dream.
