The DEER/DEAR series

#1/ #2/#3/ #4/ #5/ #6/ #7/ #8/ #9
Mixed Media on Board
Each painting measures approximately 18″H x 12″W

2016 – 2017

X

ALL of my work is an encounter.

Visceral.

Intimate dialogues.

Calling out the  viewer’s capacity to listen/attend to nuance.
To experience the work one must have a real encounter with the offering.
My work is how a photograph of a beloved cannot compare
to the actual presence of a beloved.

X

My work denies the camera’s eye.

X

A viewer’s actual encounter with my work

is the dynamic LIVE performance.

 

X
X

X
X
X
X
X
X
X

X
X
X

I listen to my listening.
Listen. Listen. Listen wide open. 

Sacred listening.

Sacred/Sublime offerings.

The FLEUR DE LIS drawing was my FIRST work created

 His HEARTFIRE energy is forever in my heart
and
for ALL who he met and blessed.

Jim,

who was the first person
who met

Jaspar Obi

in December 2008,
received my text stating:

  Dr. Pomeroy just called at 4:10pm!

Jaspar’s ashes have arrived.

X

X

X

X

At  the very same moment
as Jim read my message:

Jim had looked upon

a

DEER

stopped at curb
on Lake Bde Maka Ska
(formerly Calhoun)
– a lake in the heart
of  residential
Minneapolis.

X
X
X
X
X

Jim stopped.

The

deer

gazed at Jim

and

then

slowly/peacefully

crossed

the street

toward the waters.

X
X
X
X
X

Jim called me immediately
with this sighting,
 with this rare phenomena, 
with this

annunciation.

X

X

X

X

X

I’ve been

waiting

for a sign of

what

energy/form

Jaspar Obi’s

soulspirit

would

present to me.

X

X

His lived life was an envoy of pure love.

X

X

X

X

X

Jaspar Obi’s

valiant / victorious

soulspirit

crossed

over

at 5:15 pm

last week

on

Veteran’s Day.

I knew

that the

DEER

was my

Jaspar Obi:

a

DEAR / DEER.

YES.

X
X
X
X
X

X
X
X
X

X

A wash

of

serene quiet sweet beauty

swept through my body

  once Jim told me the story.

The choke of my profound grief

lessened its clawed grip on my heart.

I felt the

beautiful calm

that I always experienced with

Jaspar Obi’s

living/breathing presence:

TREASURE HEART.

The symbolism of a deer is :

spiritual superiority;

piety;

devotion;

independence;
and

purification.

X

X

X

A

DEER

is a

messenger

of

serenity,

can

see

between

shadows

and

hear

unsaid

words.

X

X

X

Deer symbolism

teaches us

to maintain our innocence

and

gentleness

so that we can

share

our 

open-heartedness

with others.

JASPAR OBI’s
ashes,
contained in a simple cardboard box
and
presented in a black velvet pouch,
were brought
home
on the evening of 19 November 2019.
  The photograph was taken on the kitchen rug
where Jaspar’s food/water bowls were placed.

All of my work refuses/denies the camera’s eye.

the improvisational/sacred listening

on Earth

my

BELOVED

JASPAR OBI.

X

X

ELEMENT

is the last series of art

that was created

with the

ALL of ALL

of

JASPAR OBI

in my studio

– sleeping below my stainless steel table

and

sending his blessings to me as

I dove for the pearl deep,

listening to the sound of the silver horn,

in the sea of my imagination.

X

X

JASPAR OBI

was present,

glorious/vital/adventurous/joyous/blessed

presence,

for 10.5 years in my life.

X

Sacred listening.

JASPAR OBI

is landing his

SPITFIRE

at

Peaceful.

Loved.

Supported.

Released.

X

X

All gathered at 4:45 pm.
The wind was fierce and the temperature was frigid.
They  truly had my back
– I felt an unusual comfort in the shelter of their care.

 

X

X

I  had bathed Jaspar
in the bathtub
two hours earlier.
I seared every pass
of my hand on his body
to memory.
He was too weak to shake off the water.
We would have a game:
Shake #1 to #8!!
Jaspar loved being bathed – feeling clean, fresh.

X

Jaspar Obi’s
K9 buddies walked with him
as he was wheeled
in his cart
to
Dr. Pomeroy’s clinic several blocks away:
Juno (Leah),
Jax (Maggie);
Remy ( Erin + Todd);
with
Steph
and
Mike. 

X

X

BEAUTIFUL.

X

X

I burst out crying
when I experienced

the beauty

of the
loving kindness,
compassion
and
courage 
of those who chose to
walk with Jaspar/me
as my
heart
was

shattering.

X

X

Love IS.

PRESENCE.

LOVE is a riverVERB.

 

X

X

X

caressed
Jaspar’s
sweet body,
wrapped my arms around him
– my chest upon him,
kissed him,
and
thanked him
for our adventure
until…

X

X

Dr. Pomeroy was amazed that Jaspar’s  life force
prevailed over the grim prognosis
of his bone cancer in his sinus cavities.
Every week Dr. Pomeroy checked in.

X

X

Jaspar and I

CHOSE to LIVE.

WONDER.

AWE.

Jaspar was/is my soul guide and companion in life.

X

X

X

The walk back without my Jaspar
was walking without my legs.
Jaspar and I had created/ lived a beautiful bountiful life for 10.5 years
– together.

X

X

Suddenly,
as we entered Mears Park.
the cascade of our stories
overwhelmed me.
I was surrounded
in the dedicated love of his BEST K9 friends
and
 dear friends.

X

X

When we were crossing
through Mears Park,
Mike stopped and said:

LISTEN!

We all stopped.
In the park’s pavilion’s stage,
from the large speakers:

Sally was with me at the Dakota Jazz Club on 8 August 2012.

X

X

X

X

X

A meditation:

X

“…The physical phenomenon of quantum entanglement 
is a wonderful illustration of the interconnected nature
of reality,
both spiritual and material. 
 In quantum physics,
it appears that one particle of any entangled pair “knows”
what is happening to another paired particle
— even though there is no known means
for such information to be communicated
between the particles,
which are separated by sometimes very large distances.

X

Perhaps we could compare this to phenomena such as
bilocation,
mental telepathy,
providence,
or
synchronicity…

X

…We must deliberately choose to be instruments of peace
— first of all in our minds and hearts.
This is conscious quantum entanglement. 
God is not “in” heaven nearly as much
as God is the force field that allows us
to create heaven
through our intentions and actions.”

X

– Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations

X
X
X
X
X
X
X
X
X

Sally welcomed

ALL of life,

the ALL of ALL.

X

X

Sally eclipsed the conventions,
the discrete constructs,
of a binary world
– she lived in the three gifts of GRACE:
Faith, Hope, and Love.
She lived in the animal angel tides and waters of
Body, Soul, and Spirit.
She lived in the Dawn between the Night to the Day
between what is seen and unseen.
She lived in the Earth, Heaven, and Sea
as a winged airborne being
– carried by the air of transcendence.
She lived the miraculous cycles of birth, of death,
and,
of the resurgent re-birth
of the
Phoenix.
She lived the poem heart of a mythical creature
that could SEE light, wonder and awe
even when in the darkness of the soul.

X

Sally welcomed

ALL of life,

the ALL of ALL.

X

X

I met Sally thirty-three years ago over a telephone wire:
my call to her about supporting live performances of music.
I fell in love with the song of her voice and the chiming joy of her laugh.
A series of my calls to her ensued,
and slowly,
a sensitive and responsive recognition occurred between us.
Our next exchange would be an interaction – live.
X
Sally invited me to sit with her in front
of a wide bank of windows looking onto
the Mississippi River.
A four-hour flow of a conversation was the annunciation
of a blooming relationship
that could speak without words.
A conversation without words
would become a blessed providence
when her expression using words was cancelled.
A conversation without words meant attending
the potent language and spectrum of:
utterances;
silences;
flushes of color,
and
gestures with great and small body movements
– the instruments,
the exquisite skills,
and
the world of the artist.

X

Sally welcomed

ALL of life,

the ALL of ALL.

X

Sally’s presence was a warm candle-lit balm,
a baptism into blue cool waters,
a joyous yellow tulip hallelujah choir.
When in her presence, she engaged one fully,
completely enfolding one into her soul’s bouquet and chapel.
Sally was trust.
Her radiant countenance unlocked the citadels
of one’s truth
– lifting away and opening up scar tissues
to unveil
one’s nakedness and vulnerabilities
because of her honest,
pure and venerated gaze.
Sally was a shaman of life.
She commanded authenticity,
the requisite truth telling of intimacy,
and
elegant innocence.

X

Sally welcomed

ALL of life,

the ALL of ALL.

X

X

In a time of searing trauma of my life,
Sally tenderly and precisely extended
her shamanic arm down my throat
into my solar plexus and grasped
the cold fragile ember of my life force
with her nimble, knowing fingers
– curling it into the palm of her ballerina’s hand.

I let her in because she was she.

Gently, she beautifully glided her arm
back out of my mouth
with my life force securely held in her palm.
Sally breathed rhythmically
onto the cold ember,
until and, in time, sparks flew.
She knew my wounds could not deaden me
– the inviolable who of whom I am.
She could SEE me with an original eye.
Her soul and spirit was sacred and reverential.

X

Sally welcomed

ALL of life,

the ALL of ALL.

X

X

 

Sally was the promised kiss of springtime
– the joy of Easter,
new beginnings of creativity, wonder, and awe.

X

My heart is shattered that circumstances denied my capacity
to caress her with my actual presence and touch
to bid farewell to her physical bearings.

X

X

The night sky is now brilliant
with our unrepeatable Sally’s
rare,
fierce,
and
luminous radiance
because
Sally is Sally:
the past, the present and the future
pioneering
ONE shining exploring constellation
of 
grace love’s quiet kindness,
courageous improvisation
and
boundless innovation.

SALLY’S GARDEN

 

The poor quality photograph
documents
one of the ninety-six
original color crayon drawings.
Each  drawing was held up by wood clothespins
clipped on a wire that encircled the gallery.
Each drawing honored a cherished relationship.

The 2004 exhibition was titled:

“The soul should always stand ajar,

ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.”

Emily Dickinson
