Spiritual Encounter

"Spiritual Encounter," 5 x 5 acrylic on canvas

There are times when you come "face-to-face," for an earth-bound lack of a more appropriate word, with something beyond physical reality.

You just feel it, or know it, or wonder, whenever that "eye-contact" happens. It might be a butterfly, a bird hovering too close, or something else you just can't explain. For me, I always get a sense of it when I see the eyes of a what, or a bison, though you can't get too close. 

Given our heritage, I don't think that's surprising. I don't question the native American reverence for the spiritual strength of a rare white buffalo. Thus, this painting, finished today. Soon at In Your Eye Studio  in Paseo Arts District
