Right now I am working on how to be of service during these times of great transition, as I manifest my new working space. What continues to stick in my mind is Jung's idea that...
"Just as the individual's conscious mind needs to be brought into greater harmony and balance with the countervailing tendencies of the unconscious, so a particular culture needs to readjust its collective perspectives through the agency of myth and symbol. It is the mythmaking artist who discovers the compensatory archetypal image that the age and culture require for greater balance."
So I ponder, as an artist and a myth maker, what I can bring forth that can serve not only my own creative urges, but also the world at large, which is no doubt in need of some balance.
Coming in early 2015 - Grand Reponing of Mythic Arts
After a journey of mythic proprtions through multiple states, many miles, and several abodes, I am happy to announce that I am back on Whidbey Island, where we have found a magical piece of property in the historic Maxwelton Valley and have completed the remodel of a 1902 farmhouse, which will also be the site of my new studio to be completed sometime in 2015!
A small sampling of my art.
