Tribal Attraction

I love all things tribal. Seeing the grace and the fortitude of nomadic hunter gatherers and tree dwellers in the jungle reminds me of how capable we are of living in harmony with ourselves, one another and our environment. Even though it’s hard to grasp in our techy world, I think going barefoot and creating ceremony, learning ancient crafts and talking with respect to one another is the least we can do to ensure our wellbeing and the reconnection with the earth energies.

This little painting was very spontaneous, the second layer of thickly applied and freely felt acrylic. The little tribal man appeared from out of nowhere, perhaps here to remind me to wield my spear of truth with pride and skill. I like him a lot.

About Phoebe Thomasson

I am in love with expression in all forms; art, poetry, writing, music, dance...I want to inspire creativity, foster understanding and nurture the process of transformation in myself and others. In short, I want to evolve. This requires trust in speaking one's truth and freedom from fear and shame. If we cannot speak our truth without shame, then we have far to go! Join me as I heal my psyche through the creative process and find interesting perspectives as I go about my personal evolution as an artist, mother, and Shaman.
