About this artwork:
From the Internationally Sold '2013 Warrior + Series' this is the Eighth piece titled "Totem" . The Series is dedicated to those everyday heroes. There are those among us who have chosen to have a life rather than let life have them. These men and women using their strength and self and inspiration to power them through difficulty, and hardship, even doubt and this makes them more than warriors.
Each of us have a divine council. Loved ones, heroes, those we admire who we reach out to in times of need. Be them in our presence or long parted from our world they are carried within us, their advice, and love guiding us. These souls are our totem, to remind us we are not alone.
Powdered pigment was used during a rainstorm then the painting slowly rotated to form natural striations and variation in color. Raw spices such as coffee, cherry, kiwi, orange, henna and black berry were used to create this piece. There is actual plant and herb used in each painting to derive the colors in each of these paintings as a prime pigment for the paintings. Each piece is kept pristine by a special formula which coats and protects the piece, preventing aging and oxidation as long as the painting is kept out of direct sunlight. The artist uses natural inks stains and dyes that he makes himself out of herbs, spices, flowers, fruits and minerals as depicted in more detail in the artist's blog Google Patrick Gorman Pettis Fine Art
