It was over 20 years ago when I was camping on Mt Shasta in Panther Meadows during the late summer, when I came across a talented brother who was thoughtfully doing a series of sketches on feathers and the mountain. We talked and became friends for several days as we were camping near each other and I watched as he was making several variations on these themes of moutains and feathers.Then one day his creativity was sparked and he started stylizing the feather into wings as you see them in the angel picture above called “Accession – The Return”.
He was drawing images of clouds dripping into a circle of empty space and finally a rough image of the angel flyng into the circle of clouds with these beautiful wings. It was very similar to the art piece below titled “The Hesitation”. Both of these wonderful art works were bought into gestation in those few days in and around panther meadow those many years ago. I was always aware of his talent for many years I did not see him. However I always enjoyed these two art pieces that I was privy to be witness to their inception so to speak. The plethorora of Bruce’s other interpretations of interdimensional realities is gifted and more importantly spiritualy inspired in my humble opinion.
I have run into Bruce through the years in Mt Shasta, Ashland, Eugene and even LA. I always told him how honored I felt to be there while he peered into the other side and drew his inspiration to manifest such beautiful work. Then in 2012 my mission began in earnest and my website launched in Jan. 2013. I chose the name The Promise Revealed and his piece “Accession – The Return” was for me the only choice for a logo picture. At the time I did not have Bruces contact information but I just used his artwork on faith.
Several years later I ran into him again and told him i was using his image on my website and as a true brother and a good friend he siad “Cool or No Problem”. I felt relieved because I love it so. I am really more of an Fan than a friend as I only see him on the odd synchronistic meeting which is never planned. Recently I invited him to Mt Shasta to have a booth at my summer conference to thank him for his kindness allowing me to use his image for so many years.
