This is a painting that taps into the mysteries of understanding who we are in time. Are we here or there? Male or female? Native, animal spirit or refined and modern sophisticate?
It is a painting about who we are and the things we carry and all the questions that live inside us, waiting to be born and explored. It is also about ancestral lines and ancestral healing, family and cultural history, and the influence of longstanding beliefs and patterns.
What is your essential story of life? What is alive in you?
This Spirited Life painting is from the Dreams of a New World collection from Virginia artist Dawn Richerson.
