Honesty [Raven]: For Victims of Addiction
original acrylic on canvas, 2016
48" x 60"
So many of our families have suffered from the devastating force of addiction. So many of our youth continue to be caught in its destructive web, whether through drugs or alcohol. The lone handprint in this Vision signals the hopelessness for those who succumb to addiction. Yet, like the mythical giant Kitchi-Sabe, our spirit is fortified when we honestly take stock of our own strengths and use them to survive. The mischievous and prophetic Raven of mythology is an apt symbol for such honesty, since it acts as a liberator of those in captivity and a bringer of light. In this Vision, it is Honesty in the form of the Raven that rekindles the spirit needed to break free from the clutches of addiction. A spirit of love tempers the trickster nature of the Raven – can you spot an eagle among the flock?
