Elemental Alchemy Elemental Alchemy This image depicts the loving energy of Gaia, our Mother, as she cradles the Earth in her arms. She witnesses the firey birth pains of the planet as it shifts into the fifth dimension. Above her head and moving into the planet is a DNA strand that is made of light. This symbolizes the new patterning of all that Earth and its inhabitants are becoming.Elemental Alchemy

The Mercy of Severity
Source Vibrations
In the emptiness of yesterday’s death We draw in tomorrows breath, Disintegrating particles of time and space In the entropy of our human grace, In the untold we unfold leaving behind, not a single trace, No mind, no body, no foot-print, no face.
The Mercy of Severity

This piece deals with the inevitability of change... with all it's faces, and also reflects that with all change comes potential... the power to mould something New from the ashes of what has gone before as we move ever forward through the cycles of life. The color schematics I chose reflect the nature of fire, the ancient Pagan symbol for transformation. It burns through the old, and though we mourn the loss,the seed of the New has already taken root. In the painting you can see the image of the elusive...Creation's story is never told

People's Choice
The star called sun brings life and warmth to us here on this little rock. Sometimes the same thing that brings us light and warmth also causes death and destruction. But the sun brings hope, life, and joy to those things effected and life is again as it was. Size: 24 x 18 Medium: Acrylic on paperBailando en el Sol (Dancing in the Sun)

Reaching for the reflection that provides the courage to carry on and embrace renewal, this contradiction is portayed through a pool of firey-like water.

"After the Fires"
Lori Brookes
2004 in Julian on a fundraising tour to help rebuild James Hubbell's home one year after the Cedar Fires I came across a solitary sunflower beaming against the charred and blackened manzanilla landscape. In that instant the sunflower symbolically was speaking of the cycle of life and from the ashes of tragedy we will rise again.

 Rod Lingren
Rod Lingren
Rod Lingren’s father, who taught at printmaking at SDSU, was pivotal to his art education. He assisted him at the International Printmaking Workshop in Turkey and India, which was sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute and the USIA. Mr. Lingren has made bronze sculpture, jewelry and steel sculpture. He worked as a Master Printmaker at Orr's Gallery and Ettan Press. He taught sculpture and Drawing for the Orme School Fine Arts Festival where he was on staff for 23 years. Many of his works are in private, public and corporate collections. Eight years ago Mr. Lingren's main emphasis turned to Plein Air and Studio oil painting where he is finding joy and fulfillment in recording California's beautiful but vanishing landscape.
