Tails of Shahrazad

Tails of Shahrazad from The Arabian Nights, 1001 Nights

These are the stories that saved the life of Shahrazad, who's husband--the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage.

Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazad always withheld the ending. After 1001 nights, her life was spared forever.

Many of these stories have weaved their way into our culture. "Sinbad the Sailor", "Ali Baba ad the Forty Thieves", "The Fisherman and the Genie" are just a few to mention. In this body of work, Shahrazad finds inspiration in a wise old soul who happened to be embodied as a cat.

 Together they change the course of history and birth "The Tails of Shahrazad."

Tails of Shahrazad 40x40 oil on canvas with collage each piece approx 9x12 sold as set $2700.

Through the Eyes of an Ancient Portal

Through the Eyes of an Ancient Portal 

The reasons for making these paintings are multi-faceted. First the desire alone, the passion I felt to remake certain inner themes.

 However passion is motivating, but it's not enough. The idea of transformation is what allows for the new energy to take hold.

 Ancient concepts bask in contemporary views.

 In this way, transformation can now begin to take new shape represented here with the symbology of the old being replaced by the new, 

guided by the Higher Self. All of which we are asked to be in the process of self-empowerment as we walk the path, ascending to greater awareness to that which is ourself. 

The Divine Self, becoming the God Self.
