Prayers into the Wind, Autumn Equinox

Limited Edition Giclee Prints / Visionary

Oil on Panel | 30″ x 30″ | 2011

Autumn energy is about surrender and letting go. To me it is a time that symbolizes the ultimate faith because it is a time of death that leads to rebirth. One cannot begin without an end so it is this faith in the unseen forces of nature that life will return; dormant seeds get planted for the future. Here she is placing prayers and wishes into the milkweed seeds as the wind carries them to fertile ground. A red tailed hawk sits on her shoulder as a guide and symbol of the spirit world being present. Maple leaves turning bright orange cascade around her like fire and on the right a tree has already shed its leaves and looks barren but we know it is only at rest and regenerating for it’s new life.
