The Oasis Series

"Oasis #5" gouache painting by Mitzi Linn

I look towards spring from my window above the park. This painting series was created in Oaxaca. The tall rocks represent spirits of the natural world. They are also spirit guides--connected to our universal ancestors as well as enlightened beings existing in the spiritual world.

On a waterway, a boat sails by. At the bottom of the spirit stones, grow many tropical type plants. The sky is sunset red. The boat holds our hopes and dreams as we sail into the unknown.
