WIND FROM THE WEST, 2006   41x 51″

This landscape begins with my father’s barn roof with a primitive witches broom flying above it. The fenced-in area contains an “Umbilicus Mundi” or navel of the world, guarded by megaliths and figures on stilts. The circle is also a golf green with a flag resting on a downed megalith. The “Stilted” figures are from a dream. The mountain in the immediate background forms the shape of a reclining figure. Above the mountain the blue sky beneath the black cloud echoes the shape of the broom.
