“Green Glow”

Stacks Image 252
This painting portrays a person elevated high above the desert sands, in a state of ecstatic revelation, their body aflame with the green glow of cactus. Below him, the heart of the cactus, eyes open in all directions, with wings of flaming grace.rising from the desert sands, and falling to them as well, are skulls representing the flesh that comes and goes as consciousness weaves into and out of existence. Trichocereus cacti have been used for thousands of years as gateways to god and openers of the heart. Each time I sit with cactus, I am shown again and again what truly matters and how to live a life from the heart.
