This painting incorporates many elements of the Celtic culture and the magical Fairy realms. Tiny fairies make up the twirling colors of the rainbow.
Part of this painting reveals Merlin’s triumphant emergence from a crystal cave, where he was trapped by a magic spell. While he slept the world of Camelot struggled in darkness without his guidance and influence. Ultimately it was the power of love that brought him back.
The rainbow colors below the cauldron form a stem, pouring forth the vibrational attributes that merge heavenly elements into the earth. A god dips the tiny men into the cauldron and they emerge as higher, more aware beings who possess the powers of divine vision, becoming God-men.
The village girl near the oak tree comes as a representation of Ipona, Goddess of the horses, bringing her cornucopia of abundant fruits to the land and the people.
“This latest painting speaks of the beauty and wonder of another era of times past, in my series of Lost Worlds.”
