Mystic Markings

Mystic Markings

Strangely enough this painting arose while I was listening to “Stairway to Heaven“ by Led Zeppelin. I imagined a shaman or druid climbing a long, winding staircase envisioning symbols, visions, secret formulas or herbal recipes. Coincidentally, a few years later, I discovered that this is also an archetype in the study of Tarot cards named the Hermit who lights the way to knowledge, the sacred and the mystical. The symbols arose intuitively and have no particular significance except that attributed by the reader. This painting was created on printmaking and rice paper and completed with acrylics. (Stairway to Heaven) SIZE 31” x 41”
