Funny, how someone can plant a seed in your head and it grows into something that you had never imagined. In this case it grew from something scary into something beautiful and not scary at all. You see….I always though that totems were kind of scary…something that I would imagine to be present in nightmares. (They never appeared in any of my nightmares but anyway…) Animals and faces with snarly teeth and squinty eyes…ready to dance around you and pounce on you once you run out of ground in which to escape but after I saw the beautiful artistic quality of the totems created by Teesha and Tracy Moore...I became excited about drawing totems. I saw them in an entirely different light. They're not scary at all!!! They are "totems" of beauty!
Footnote: Teesha and Tracy Moore, in the Artstronaut's Club, are currently exploring drawing totems using different media.
Until next time,
