Interdisciplinary Still Life Painting

(second version)
Words & Music by Paul McMillan
Oil on Panel
20" x 24"
No. 73
In this Interdisciplinary Still life Oil Painting, "Shadows," an original oil on panel, I wanted to explore the spirit of the Anasazi's absence. First I wrote a song at Natural Bridges Park, Utah, in an Anasazi ruin while hiking the canyon trail, which was like a great hall filled with petroglyphs on the wall. Then I painted the picture. This painting, No. 73, is the second version in this series.
The third version of this painting has a handmade sculpted and guilded frame matching the one shown in the subject is No.104

Only the clouds cast the shadow
of the Buffalo on the ground.
In a great hall on a canyon wall the Anasazi left
their magic message for us all.
Love your mother earth for all
that life is worth and your answer why is written in the sky.
We have spread ourselves thin into the wind, and we're
wandering with the spirits until we're back again.
