The Five Animals
This painting is a gift to my cousin and close friend. He recently obtained
his life long dream of owning and teaching at his own karate studio. The
original now hangs prominently in the dojo.
The Animals represent the styles of karate that he specializes in. They
are as follows:
Dragon with yin yang symbol - Spirit
Snake (Cobra) - Speed
Leopard (Chinese Leopard) - Stealth
Crane - Grace
Tiger - Strength
For as long as she can remember, Becky's always loved science and nature.
She's always had pets, and she says people who have grown up with animals
learn so much from them. She's also always loved space -- "Ya' know, the big
black stuff up there when the big bright thing goes away...."
When she was very little, she used to study the stars and planets. She
found out about constellations and the mythological stories behind them.
When she found that a lot of it pertained to animals - BINGO! - that's when
the love for fantasy and wildlife bloomed.
Becky currently works full time at home in lovely Salem, New Hampshire,
rendering custom work and designing web sites.
