Monday Photo Meditation: Black Shadows and Strong Hearts

Photo copyright Wings, 2016; all rights reserved.

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a photo meditation for this day the rest of the country calls Memorial Day. Today's post honors the strong heart of a friend and fellow artist, a Native vet whose work we've long carried, and who we just learned walked on a few weeks ago after a long and continuous battle with the long black shadows cast by the war in VietNam. 

The post is here. Wings's main page is here. Inquiries via the site's Contact form. And, yes, the photo is available for purchase, and sales are of course always needed, but the purpose of today's post is to remember and honor our friend Wilson to the rest of the world.

Fledgling

I was less than a fledgling . . . and now I have to learn to fly all over again.

Maybe we can teach each other.

In the White Light of Peace

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a work that was planned for today for reasons outside of the symbolism attendant on this long weekend. Nevertheless, it fits exceptionally well — and serves as a reminder to us that the duty of the starting point for peace always rests with those with power.

The blackbird welcomes me, and the only blues are the afternoon sky.

The Promise of Summer

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's butterflies and stardust and brilliant white light. Together, they hold the promise of summer, an early monsoon season notwithstanding.

Friday Feature: Realizing Life's Possibility

Photo copyright Aji, 2016; all rights reserved.

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's our final Friday Feature for the month of May, a month in which we have explored the small paintings of other Native artists within the context of the month's larger themes of color. This week, it's a small painted woodcut in the form of Crow Mother, a traditional Hopi katsina who is the mother of the spirits.
