Camazotz mining for the heart of power

Our bones, flesh and blood are made up of the metals, liquids and minerals of the earth and everything on this planet is made up of the same things. As humans we have being, so everything on the earth does too in our culture, because we are made of the same thing.

The Hidden Folk 

 The master of reflection has a forehead of mirrors that captures the on looker. whatever the master says changes the shape of the viewers reflection.  

  The warden of petals regulates and enhances scent and can influence specific moods of an entire group.

The Prophet of mu is the last representative of mu. a close encounter with the medium has made people become more conducive to psychic waves.

“Religion, mysticism and magic all spring from the same basic 'feeling' about the universe: a sudden feeling of meaning, which human beings sometimes 'pick up' accidentally, as your radio might pick up some unknown station. Poets feel that we are cut off from meaning by a thick, lead wall, and that sometimes for no reason we can understand the wall seems to vanish and we are suddenly overwhelmed with a sense of the infinite interestingness of things.”

“In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits. These limits are to be found experientially and experimentally. When the limits are determined, it is found that they are further beliefs to be transcended. In the province of the mind, there are no limits. The body imposes definite limits.”

 Within your hands you hold the wands of equilibrium and power. the batteries of will and the undiscovered self. Reflection, work and sympathy all become points of light that guide the feral mind out of an uncultivated condition.  There are four periodic totems illustrated as the lion, the bull, phoenix, human. Each property outlines a temperament of matter and attitude.. the lion, a totem originally from Africa, has outlasted transference from one culture to another without losing potency or worth among spiritual correspondence. The head of the bull patterns after the design of the uterus delivering manifestation and routine. The phoenix is the transmutation of the vertebra, the keyboard of birth, traits, activities and departure. The human stands as a condition between gravity and light. young and old.  baseless and proven. With all animals mentioned including the yew tree strength embodies the value and rewards of endurance.

psychometry and contacting the natural self
I decided to experiment in self-induced trance; the idea being to induce an abnormal state of consciousness and manifest the results, if any,in drawing. My aim was to delve down into the subconscious and, if possible, though and beyond it.

Oracles of a Petrified Planet 

“Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshiping.”

Yew Mysteries


Great Yew of Glen Lyon at Fortingall in Perthshire, Scotland was a tiny green yew ‘acorn’, ‘apple’ then ‘nut’. Experts such as Alan Titchmarsh can now state it is 6,000 years old, Professor David Bellamy, even 9,000 years old. This living being was already ancient before the Great Pyramid was built (according to standard Egyptian chronology) at the centre of the Earth’s longest land contact meridians at Giza around 4.500 years ago. Fortingall is regarded as the geographical centre of Scotland. Once, in early Egyptian times, the Orion constellation was called the Tree of Life. Given the Orion star correlation theory of Robert Bauval et al and three pyramids’ layout at Giza, perhaps they symbolise the Tree of Life and, if so, are where the Tree of Life should be - in the centre of the ‘Garden’ of Earth. Osiris was deceptively laid in a hollow tree by his jealous brother and killed but after regeneration by Isis his wife, his face is coloured green. Some think this is the ‘Green Man’, particularly venerated at Rosslyn Chapel, where the famous ‘Apprentice Pillar’ is actually the World Tree, or Tree of Life.

On the lost Trail 
The essential for a Zen painter means a manner of being in the deepest sense and not, as for us, a manner of doing. For them it means fusion in the life of the cosmos...

Oil painting for Taos Astrologer Rex Estell 

Inseparable from magical speculation about words is the theory of vibrations, which supposes that certain sounds have a powerful acoustic impact on both the physical and astral worlds. That vibrations do in fact govern sound is confirmed by physics which teach us that sound originates when molecules begin to vibrate and trigger off a wave formed by sympathetic vibration of neighboring molecules.

    Pluto Transit at The Observatory, 15 S Howard St, Spokane 

Besides being an artist, I'm a detective investigating the collective unconsciousness. 

Many of my paintings test the surrealistic method of automatic painting.  This trial employs the force of the subconscious to reveal images. Usually the expectation of creating a picture follows the gravitational pull from brain, to a sketch to the painting. These steps match and complete the artist's will in one magnetic stream.. however surrealism exercises a different kind of intention and will. Surrealism requires tuning into the dreaming brain like a radio that's receptive to lots of channels. 

Our most religious and animistic part of the brain can be stimulated by treating any surface or background as if Rorschach spilled ink everywhere. Some found images will share the same space and time together, like a bird's head with a human body. 

One has to keep an eye on their amygdala and the persuasive ability it has to produce fear during these experiments. Fear will keep you from your best future self ..and after all everything is you.. including your shadow.
