From my Spirit Series,Ancestor's Spirit is a cannonball gourd measuring 4 1/2" high and 5" wide.

This piece took me a long time to do.The two techniques I utilized the most was woodburning and carving.The only thing I knew I was going to do when I started was the wolf's head,which is woodburned.The other designs just happened one by one.I used a variety of coloring techniques-ink,dye,colored pencil,and stain.

So often I would try to understand what I create.What I finally learned is that not everything I create is meant for me to understand.So I simply do what the Ancestors lead me to do and give thanks to them for each creation.I do know that what I create has meaning and,perhaps,is even healing.I do the best I can to honor the Ancestors and bring forth the messages they give to me.
