Notes from DaVic Gallery: ‘Bull Elk and Cow’ – shows graceful flow and simplicity in every line and curve that sometimes details are easily overlooked and then identified and appreciated with each time one looks at Eddy’s watercolors. Take note the curious design in his signature depicting what seems to be a hare running and leaving tracks behind while a bird glides above, perhaps a predator.
An elk cow responds to the call of the bull elk in the woods. In another painting titled “Bull Elk”, dated 1993, we can see a cow in the distance while the bull grasses in the woods. In this painting, Cobiness seems to bring them together after one year.
Elk spirit teaches how to best apply our personal energy, pacing ourselves to fulfill goals. Elk represents passion, leadership, alertness, nimbleness and endurance. When it appears in our lives it’s typically with a message about how you’re running your race. Life is not a print, it’s along path and if you rush, you’ll risk missing dangers and lessons that lie along the way. Elk spirit is generally considered masculine in nature and a symbol of a successful hunt and it is also the spirit animal who protects women.
