Great past two days @100braidst_gallery I’ve had many people stop by to connect and share with me! I was painting and it turned into a bit of an art demo, a little nerve racking but people seemed to like what I was doing so I’ll take that as a win! I love my art community, come stop in sometime ❤️ Photo credit @grantwithers_art 😊 . . . . #artcommunity #artstudio #100braidst #artdemo #workshop #melissaburgher #flashesofdelight #artwork_daily #explorecreate #artworkoftheday #creativelife #makeartnotwar #visualsoflife #dscolor #livewithart #calledtobecreative #colourventures #colourcolourlovers #yvrartists #art_enlighten

This painting draws from both the Gitxsan Lax Gibuu (wolf) clan and a Cherokee legend Two Wolves: An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on everyone” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret...” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity....” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.” I believe we need to have opposites in the world to fully appreciate what is good and what is “bad”. So the black wolf is not necessarily evil but perhaps a necessity that allows the goodness of the wolf to exist. What are your thoughts on this painting? Model @gabmaybelle Thanks for viewing xx
