A painting donated to The Breast Cancer Research Centre WA. This painting was inspired by my Mother who passed away at age 39 from Breast Cancer and my Grandmother who also lost her battle with this disease. I watched my mother struggle with the chemo, the depression and chaos Breast Cancer brings to a family. The pink in all its shades represents all the women fighting cancer now, the browns represent all the skin tones and the gold just the importance of these people in their family and friend's lives.

THE ROUNDNESS OF THINGS
THE ROUNDNESS OF THINGS

Inspired by a quote by Black Elk from a book "Black Elk Speaks" by John G. Neinardt Quote -The flowering tree was the living centre of the hoop, and the circle of the four quarters nourished it. The East gave peace and light, the south gave warmth, the west gave rain, and the north with it's cold and mighty wind gave strength and endurance. This knowledge came to us from the outer world with our religion. Everything The Power of the World does in done in a circle. The sky is round, and I have heard the Earth is round like a ball, and so are all the starts. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours.
