Sprouted from the chaotic waves of creation,

the Carousel Tree creates balance and harmony.

Spirit animals circle, spinning a tranquil web of light. 

 

"I was reading an article about restored antique carousels. There was a photo of a carousel lit up at night, which inspired me to do this painting. The proportions of the tree I created match those of the carousel from the article. The trunk of the tree is the same width as the panels that surround the center pole on the carousel. The glowing leaves line up with the lightbulbs. Wild animals of North America replace the horses.
 
I saw a documentary about white grizzly bears. Native Americans call them spirit animals. I searched online and discovered all the animals I used have white varieties. Spirit animals have a mystical appearance, and I tried to portray that feeling in the background. Carousel was painted using open acrylics."
