Welcome to Earthway Art
The inspiration for my artwork comes from a fascination with the ancient stone works throughout the world, earth energies, a respect and interest with indigenous medicine wheels, and the spiritual significance surrounding them. The medicine wheels, often being situated on beautiful rolling grasslands overlooking grand vistas added to their allure for me. Back-dropped by the stars, showing alignments and calibration with them, I find simply amazing. Perhaps a better term for them would be prairie temples, they share similarities with other ancient stone ruins from around the world, such as being circular, symbolizing unity, and astronomical alignments as seen with Stonehenge. Re-creating them in artwork, both in existing and fictional variety has been something I've wanted to do for some time. The crop circle designs were a natural extension from the medicine wheel format, given my interest in them as well. Most crop circle designs are quite complex, but I continue to come up with new methods of re-creating them.
Please re-visit the site as I continually do new designs in this type of format, and I am always coming up with other types of artwork as well, which I keep original and accurate.
Tiny stones and various vegetation placed individually into a pulp and plaster substrate topped with either latex and white paint for a snowdrift effect, sand or hobby turf. After 10 days of curing, the artwork is mounted in aged and distressed rough-cut cedar frames, behind glass with frosted borders. The tiny stones used, are in either black, natural, and rainbow rock. The African ruins, Peruvian citadel, and Stonehenge are cast from cement and sand.
