This series of mixed media landscapes came to me in a vivid dream that was given. It came at the base of Mt. Kuchumaa, in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico. For many centuries Kumeyaay tribespeople knew Mt. Kuchumaa as the “exalted high place”. In their eyes, Kuchumaa was the womb of the world, the place where creation sprang. Only Shamans were allowed on the summit. It was an important gathering place for the people. They went there to receive inspirational dreams.
I received a dream so powerful it changed my way of painting, and inspires me to pursue that dream.
