Oak and Birch Trees

Oak And Birch

I took this photo a couple of years ago.  I like it because I really appreciate trees.  I enjoy looking at how they grown amongst each other.  The Oak tree is a dark bark whereas the birch tree is white with sections of striped black.  As we know trees are important for keeping erosion at bay.  Plus, we also know that carbon dioxide is absorbed by the tree and produce oxygen for our benefit to breathe and the world too.  I like the angle that these trees have taken in an effort to continue to grow.  This photo was taken at Assiniboine Forest in Winnipeg.

Golden Eagle Head

I took this photo of the Golden Eagle near Lake Winnipeg.  I also saw and took photos of Bald Eagles.  Their range of living is 200 km2 (77 sq mi) based on what Wikipedia says.  This is quite a big territory but not if you are a flying eagle that soars across the skies with ease.  They have a partial migration.  If they are further north, they usually migrate when living at a latitude of 60 degrees north and shorter migrations if they are at the 50 degree latitude.  If you take the location of Gimli, Manitoba they are at 50.6667° N, 97.0500° W.  And if you are at Winnipeg, Manitoba the near center of Canada it is 49.8994° N, 97.1392° W.   These beautiful yet hardy birds will only do a partial migration during the cold months of winter.

More Art Symbolism Explained – Sprouting Seed 2

Copyright Protected by Mary Mikawoz

Copyright Protected by Mary Mikawoz

This abstract painting is a continuation of the Sprouting Seed and like the first soul emerging; this is the second soul emerging from the first one.  If you look at the first picture and the second picture, you will see that they connect and the first painting “feeds” into the second one and like the “bone” from Adam’s rib, this represents this connection with the creation of Eve from the Bible.  She is whole and complete because she has her own seed that she has come from but has been aided with the help of Adam.

Art Symbolism Explained – Sprouting Seed 1

Copyright Protected by Mary Mikawoz

This abstract painting shows a “Sprouting Seed” but what it does, for me, is symbolize the birth or creation of the very first soul which is Adam as in the Bible.  He is sprouting as if from a cocoon and as you can see he has wings like a butterfly that he is shedding as he arises from the bud or chrysalis form.  He is ascending and with him comes something like an umbilical cord which represents his Higher Self or Spirit which, like in the painting, is always with Adam.

Profile Face in Tree

I took this photo of the inside of a Californian Redwood tree and I found it remarkable to see the profile of a face.  It is a strong side view of a face with a forehead, an eye, nose and chin going down into a neck.  Can you see the image in the wood?

It is gnarled and old yet somehow very strong as a male figure.  I enjoy the browns, greens and other hues found in the wood. As well, I think the moss near the bottom of the face is an incredible green neon shade which is amazing to me because it naturally occurs in nature.

Green Moss

It has been awhile since I have loaded up some photos and I must say that it feels as if a part of my soul has been missing out.

Here is an image of green moss found on the famous redwood trees of Muir Woods near San Francisco.  These trees are part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Centre on the Pacific Coast.  According to Wikipedia, “Before the logging industry came to California, there were an estimated 2 million acres (8,000 km2) of old growth forest containing redwoods growing in a narrow strip along the coast.”  Many of the trees have disappeared except for a small section of these redwood trees that were set aside by William and Elizabeth Kent.

Sparkling Water and Goose

I could not believe how gorgeous the water turned out around this goose.  The white goose is encircled with huge diamond–shaped sparkling lights.  I love the way the water seems to fold itself over delicately moving as the goose glides along the water.  I also love the multi-pointed sparks of light.  This photo was taken in Freeport, Bahamas in The Garden of the Groves on the Grand Bahamas Island.

“Look Ma, I can fly!”

This is an image of a pelican flying near a dock on Lake Winnipeg.  I like the way he or she delicately takes off from the rocks to fly and seems to be saying “Look Ma, I can fly!”  The other pelican is oblivious and looks like he or she is saying, “Boy, I don’t care.  Stop showing off my brother/sister (pick one).  We can all do that!  Who really cares!  I am going to ignore you.”

Their large beak and large throat pouch is used for catching fish and not carrying babies as fairy tales would have us believe.  Too bad!  They range in many areas and fossil evidence show that they date back to 30 million years ago.  They are gregarious birds who hunt cooperatively and breed colonially.  Pelicans are found on inland lakes and costal waters.

According to Wikipedia, “They have suffered from habitat destruction, disturbance and environmental pollution, and three species are of conservation concern. They also have a long history of cultural significance in mythology, and in Christian and heraldic iconography.”
