Sacred Convocation by Marcia Molnar oil

Sacred Convocation 45 x 45 inches, oil, $12,000

On a warm day in October, I found myself standing in a small herd of Bighorn sheep on the rim of Grand Canyon.  In the quiet munching and shuffling of hooves I was hopelessly enchanted.

The Canyon is a magical, spiritual place, and somehow, I am compelled to paint the intangible poetry of earth, wind, wild things, and light.   This painting is so much about what I love, not just the canyon and sheep but movement and repetition of light, shape, and color, the obvious and subtle.

I gave myself permission and freedom to do exactly what I wanted to do and let it ride but very time I thought I was finished, I was not.  The painting kept wanting a little more intensity, a little more depth.  Sacred Convocation has finally stopped talking to me, so I know it is done and time to move on.
