Tree Goddess

Tree Goddess

I drew the basic drawing by listening to a guided visualization. I saw this nude woman as being part of nature and being an essential component of this wonderful growing tree. She is in essence a Tree Goddess.

She is so much more than stillness and is about movement and dance. I like the symmetry and flow of the lines. She is about accepting your body as it is – whether big or small and whether tall or short – it is perfectly fine and divinely created. She is enveloped as part of the tree and yet she is separate in form and essence. Your body is, after all, your sanctuary for your soul.

I love the vibrancy of the colours. I love the way there is integrity and connection to the environment.

Don’t Look

Don’t Look

Don’t Look Directly at the Sun! So, I didn’t. I hid behind a tree and basked in the glow of the sunshine emanating and peaking out at its sides. 

I love the way that the sun manages to find its way to almost everywhere in life on the Earth. It is constantly shining for our benefit and our delight. It is a source of so much good. 

According to the Reference website, “The sun has been a symbol of power, growth, health, passion and the cycle of life in many cultures and religions throughout time. Some believe it is a representation of the higher self, while others see the sun as a god to be worshiped.”

Touch of Red

Touch of Red

I absolutely love the contrast in this autumn scene. The red of the fruit of the tree contrasts nicely with the white of the plants around and in front of it that are nicely frosted in the cold. I like the effect of the light in the picture along with the various textures. I love the mood and effect of the photograph gives off. 

Snow is actually softly falling in the air as I took this photograph. This was taken at the English Gardens at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Ancient Tree

Ancient Tree – Drawing & Digital Art by Mary Mikawoz

Ancient Tree

The original base of this abstract drawing is coloured pencils. I was listening to a guided visualization by Colette Baron-Reid. I had visions of an ancient tree with a textured being and also a very rich, red root system. I have added more colour to the background.

New Life

New Life – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

New Life

This is a photograph I took near Little Deer in Manitoba, Canada. It is showing the contrast between trees that are broken down, separated and decaying. However, it also shows that life anew is happening with regrowth and new life. It is showing the verdant life form. It is like the cycles of life; of death and rebirth. It continues in nature’s pattern and way.

Grackle

Grackle

This is a female Great-Tailed Grackle found in Arizona. Females are brown whereas the males are black. I love they way the leaves softly and gently frame the bird. She is enjoying the shade. 

According to the Audubon Field Guide, Great-Tailed Grackles are omnivores and their diet is varied including “many insects, also spiders, millipedes, snails, crayfish, tadpoles, small fish, lizards, eggs and nestlings of other birds, and sometimes adult birds. Also eats a wide variety of seeds, waste grain, berries, fruit, and nuts.”

Decay

Mikawoz Decay

Decay

I was walking along the sandy beaches near the ocean at Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia when I saw something interesting. It was this embedded tree in the sand. It had been decaying because of the elements of sun, wind, water and sand. It has become integrally part of the Earth once more. I like the interesting divots and features in the wood.

Forest of Birch Trees

Mikawoz Forest of Birch Trees

Forest of Birch Trees

These are beautiful birch trees found in the forests of Elk Island Provincial Park near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

According to Wikipedia, “Birches have spiritual importance in several religions, both modern and historical. In Celtic cultures, the birch symbolizes growth, renewal, stability, initiation, and adaptability because it is highly adaptive and able to sustain harsh conditions with casual indifference.”

In Between

In Between

The Canada Goose is between two tree trunks. He is heading towards the water. In the background, you can see another goose rising up out of the green algae water.

It was taken at St. Vital Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and as the geese are back now, it will be a common sight again.

Woe is Me!

Mikawoz Woe is Me

Woe Is Me

This is actually a white-handed gibbon. I made the image black and white and then added a brownish hue to it. He looks a bit sullen to me and so that it is why I called it “Woe is Me!”

According to National Geographic, “White-handed gibbons are small tailless apes with soft, thick fur. They live in trees and li ke to stay high up in the canopy of trees. Their very long arms allow them to swing effortlessly among the tree branches. They can also change direction in a split second, and can catch birds in midair and eat them after landing.”
