Breath of the Spirit
Ritchie Sinclair
acrylic on canvas, 44 x 60 inches, 2016.

This painting depicts the Woodland School conjured into being by the great creative spirit of the Northwest Coast.

“The spirit comes through you. It is a very powerful creative force, you see. You could be a singer, you could be a writer, you could be a painter, you could be anything if you allow that spirit to flow.”

Norval Morrisseau, 1997, Return to the House of Invention (Key Porter)
