painting my way back to philmont....





Back in July I headed to Philmont** to celebrate the grand opening of the Philmont Staff Association's beautiful new office. 

But really more importantly, I went back to commune with my deepest "soul home," one which had recently been ravaged terribly by fire and had burned a raw hole in my very being.

Here's a link to the story of that journey, which I published in the summer on my main blog over on my taosdawn.com website: 

Painting my way back to Philmont



**If you are new to my work and you don't know what Philmont is, all will be revealed to you here in my personal story.

Never. The. Less.
by Dawn Chandler 

contemporary figurative painting
mixed media collage

24” x 24” x 1.5


Never.The.Less. is my response to Kyo Gallery's call to create a painting inspired by the idea of "Resist/Recover. " A departure from my usual landscapes, Never. The. Less. is a brief and passionate return to figurative mixed media, as I populate the painting with a community of women from across the ages — including some from my own family.
 
Never. The Less. is available at Kyo Gallery in Alexandria, Virginia. Contact them here to make this provocative yours .

Blessings Swirling
by Dawn Chandler 

contemporary abstract ‘textual’ landscape
oil & mixed media

Blessing Swirling is a celebration of summer weather moving across the high desert of New Mexico... of pausing to watch and breathes in deeply, with joy and awe, as storm clouds build, their shadows darkening nearby hills, and sunlight breaking through to illuminate distant mesas, as ravens rise and lift... .
