Sun + Owl totems for Deb and Clause 2012
This is a custom floorcloth I recently finished for Deb and Claus, it has their personal totems of the Sun for Deb and an Owl for Claus at each end. When they came to visit my studio to talk about ordering their floorcloth I had the treat of hearing about the mountain home where their floorcloth would be placed. Deb and Claus had bought some land in the country, which formerly, in the ca. 1950’s had a boy’s camp on it, the main house and several of the small cabins where they boys stayed were still there. Lucky them, these cabins had totems the boys had painted on the doors , beautifully weathered and still intact ! The center image of a snake is inspired by one of those doors, also the cloud with rain and lighting. I really loved doing this floor cloth and passed it on to Deb and Claus with heartfelt blessings for their home. I love hearing peoples stories, what is important to them, the images that evokes for me and then creating a personalized artwork for them. Thank you Deb and Claus.
