Consider the Bee

This summer I read a fascinating book by Qing Li, Shinrin-Yoku: The Art and Science of Forest Bathing. The concept is simple, intentionally spend time in nature walking barefoot on the earth to reconnect.

A friend recommended I read Ted Andrews, Animal Speak: The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great and Small. This explains animal totems, stories about animals, natural history, and animal folklore.

The first painting I worked on with this theme focuses on our relationship with bees.  Bees teach us so much about teamwork and collective consciousness.

The painting I am working on now focuses on the spider. Spider totem celebrates feminine energy and recognizes the shadow, dark aspects of your personality. Spider weaves her own delicate beautiful destiny.
