Aspen Dancer - Spirit Of The Trees - Giclee Print


A warm gentle breeze rustles the fall leaves and magically, one of the trees takes human form and begins to dance. She sways and spirals through the golden forest, surrounded by energy orbs … a beautiful being you always sensed was there but only glimpsed out of the corner of an eye.

Why she chose to reveal herself to you now, to show you there is far more than can be seen, to tell you that you are a special being, you will never fully understand. But you have somehow been transformed, in ways it will take years to understand, and your afternoon walks will never be the same.

From The Artist

On my forest walks, I always sense there is life, energy and spirit among the trees, especially in the golden aspens that are known to “quake” shimmer and rustle in the wind. They have this mesmerizing movement and sound that makes them appear alive. Many visit Colorado in the fall to experience this beautiful phenomenon.

In my mind’s eye and in dreams after my walks, I’ve seen the aspens quake so strongly that they turn to beautiful female dancers, releasing from tree form to float and turn in the breeze. I believe my visions are of spirits or Dryads as they were known to the Greeks. They are energy elements that take human form to show us the way to freeing our souls, to embrace the light and energies we knew so well before birth. In creating Aspen Dancer I sought to capture and emit the metaphysical presence of this moment.

More Info - Are They Real?

In Greek mythology, Dryads are (mostly female) nature deities known to inhabit specific locations or forms, to personify the metaphysical energies of the tree or tree type they are identified with. They represent the pure energy of the thing. This idea of the spirit of a thing having sentient powers is not unique to the Greeks and can be found in all cultures.

Some say these beings were real, that they once actually walked among us, while others say they still do and that we have just lost touch with nature and no longer know how to see them. To this day some of the older Greeks who live in the country and close to nature still claim to regularly see them.

Likewise, many Europeans believe strongly in “faerie folk” while certain aspects of “Kami” in the Japanese Shinto faith point to real and sentient nature deities.

Regardless, it seems the closer one lives to nature the stronger the ties to the energies of these beings. The resurgence of new age and metaphysical understanding has made this all the more real as individuals reconnect to the spirit of the land. The painting "Aspen Dancer" calls us back to our roots, to the spirituality we once found in nature.
