DescriptionThis painting was done for a badger charity auction in UK. It is a celebration of badger energy and the pawprints represent blessings for the seven generations yet to come. Badger 's face followed the pawprints and sat squarely and unshakable in the composition, watching me from the other side of the canvas. Badger energy is about persistence, routine, organisation, continuity, building, earthy knowledge, ancestral paths, and nocturnal doings.
FAITH NOLTON, West Wales Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement My view of life is from the inner eye, the perception of the soul. As a visionary artist I paint what lies just beyond the everyday filter of the senses, and record my own soul journey with inner eyes wide open.
I am based in West Wales where for many years my paintings and poems have been inspired by the practices of natural mysticism and shamanism and the wild spirit of the land.
For me everything is alive, connected and sacred. Much of my artwork is of trees and gardens and the quiet places where we can feel the mystery of life very close and nourishing, whispering on the wind.
