"painting the colors of my soul"

Talisman

Do you keep a rabbit's foot or other symbol of good luck friends?  Perhaps you have a pressed four leaf clover from a day in the park.  A talisman is an object which is believed to contain certain magical or protective properties which would provide good luck for the possessor or possibly offer protection from evil or harm.

My husband and I have been collectors of Native American art for 20+ years, and love learning the stories behind the art.  Our affection for this art can be found in every room of our home as our "addiction" grew.        

Turquoise is one of the oldest protection talismans, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. Strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and connection to the spirit world can all be associated with the resplendent turquoise gemstone.  

Many of my paintings include the color turquoise.  I am naturally drawn to this color whenever I pick up a paint brush, and in this painting the colors leap unto the canvas in layers upon layers of blues and turquoise.  

I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.  Thank you for taking time to visit friends.  ~~Mary

Legend has it that the Native American Indians danced and rejoiced when the rains came. Their tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become Turquoise.
