Native Renaissance ll

Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, Deseronto, Ontario

Spent a wonderful time exploring the inside of this shop.  Original sculptures, collectibles, jewelry along with music from award winning Thomas B. Maracle.  We were passing through and I didn’t get the time I needed to see everything I wanted to see.  I Understand there is also a recording studio there that I would have liked to explore, and obviously to hear music that has been produced there.  http://www.nativerenaissance.com/

What I did find there, was this wonderful painting that had been done, used for advertising (guessing)  and then left to linger in the elements, I so wanted to rescue it.. but left it for someone else to enjoy and discover.  Instead I took a picture.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.  I looked and saw “beauty”… someone else may see nothing at all, but the little otter, swimming along with his friends, the giant turtle and the pesky beaver (?) , left me wanting to know more about their journey, and the man who painted them.

    funny how I see things differently than I used to just about a year ago…….now all I see is beautiful pieces of glass waiting to be used in someones next art piece…..
