Notes from DaVic Gallery: Simplicity remains with every line and curve that details are sometimes easily overlooked and then identified and appreciated with each time one looks at this piece. Take note of the curious design in his signature depicting a little furry tailed squirrel frolicking while three birds glide in the sky.
Such tender and loving moment of a mother lovingly nurturing and feeding her calf. In several of Cobiness’ paintings such as this one it is clear family love and care is important part of his life and that he desires and never received. She’s preparing and giving her calf the energy and teachings to carry the medicine of Elk spirit. 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.
