And On to the Fifth World...

Mayan Dream 2 (The Fifth World) - 26x44" Acrylic on Canvas

As early as 2000 and Y2K, I wondered what December 21, 2012, the end of the Mayan long count Calendar and the 4th world, would bring. Though much happened in between, both good and bad, the date came and went with only one party (for me), an interesting documentary or two, and little general fanfare. Here in Santa Fe in our house, with the quiet, and time for musing, the mind wanderings found their way into two paintings, Mayan Dream 1, and 2.When thinking about painting, I like to have an idea I am trying to express visually- as said before, I enjoy the cycles of seasons and the changes they bring here and their expressions often appear in my work- the end of the Mayan calendar presented itself as an opportunity for the "content " of the last 2 paintings of 2012.

A shaman whose writings I value expresses the new potential, new frequency of the 5th sun on his website, www.powerpath.com. Though I will not be alive at the end of the Katuns he speaks of (in 60 more years), his writings express the potential for a peaceful and positive world we cannot really imagine and broadly, what it might take to get there. I just have to share the link: The Solstice 12/21/12 and Beyond: A Mayan View.

Happy New Year!
