“In Beauty I Travel” (Navajo Medicine Man), 14” x 17”, pastel Brooks Garten/Artist

Spirit and nature are always a part of my work, whether in a representational/figurative piece, a flowing organic creation, something purely abstract or a combination of the three. Inspiration comes from within, along with responses to my myriad surroundings and experiences. Always drawn to the creative side of life, I began drawing and playing the piano by ear at a young age. As a self-taught artist, it is important to have the ability to re-create or convey what I see, hear and feel, while allowing my intuition to guide me. Working primarily in acrylic and pastels, my artwork has always been very personal, a healing journey in many ways, each piece taking on a life of its own. In this pastel drawing, I sought to convey the wisdom and depth of experience manifested in the being of this elder Navajo Medicine Man.

Currently, I am completing a series of abstract paintings imparting the healing energies of color. I have lived and worked in Ashland, OR since 1985. I invite you to visit my website at www.originalartwork.org.
