Shamanic Painting of Breaking Doubt

Breaking Doubt

This chalk pastel work captures a moment in a ritual when I literally had to “break doubt.” I understand that one of the greatest obstacles to our receiving wisdom from the Spirit World is our doubt. The moment we question what we see, or hear, or feel—this opening between the worlds, through which this communication is flowing—erodes and frays.

In the ceremony I knew I could only strike the clay disk in one place in order to break the disk evenly all over, and that this one spot would only be visible to my sight if I believed I could see it. Relax and be confident. One movement, one strike; breaks doubt.

Mystery of Sacred Art

In my shamanic painting, I feel I am caught on a little hook that reaches out from the Mystery of Sacred art. My large acrylic paintings are ways for me to go back through this physical world into a shamanic landscape. I believe the shaman’s world is this world with the veils removed. I see this sacred landscape better with my eyes open, journeying into shamanic worlds within my painted ones.

My art with chalk pastel is inspired by dream creatures, rituals for spirits of place, and visionary images that come during shamanic journeys. I understand that this work is food for the Holy.

When I make art with watercolor pencil, I learn how to observe nature without editing out details. I draw from the wisdom that every part, and every part between the parts, is whole.
