searching for my spirit keeper

highlights from a series of 14 monoprints.

I have been building this meditative structure for many years, the framework is the design of the hopscotch, which historically has symbolized the search for higher power. Rather than playing on the ground I decided to draw the hopscotch on paper and add elements, the chair, the ladder upon which one may climb, sit and rest while contemplating. I then incorporated the Native American stone symbols in order to have a more focused meditation. These are not symbols to pray to, instead each symbol has specific ideas to aspire to, for example the buffalo represents good luck medicine, as well as abundance, strength, and teaches us not to be wasteful.
