Energy Cubes 2010

The energy cubes evolved out of a love for painting something intimate and small, giving it as a gift. I have painted symbols and designs on small rocks and used them as a giveaway during some of my ceremonies.

When I have visited a friend who has received one or more of these items over the years, I was pleased and humbled to see that they were cherished as part of a sacred altar space. I got the idea to paint cubes because I wanted to include a three dimensional aspect to my art work. What appealed to me was the size which could be utilized as a desk ornament or colorful art object as well as a meditation piece on an altar.

I have begun to create a series of energy cubes with each having a different theme.

Energy Cubes 2010 series represents the four elements (earth, water, fire, air) with the medicine wheel representing balance. The colors are red, yellow, black, and white.
