Artist Statement

"Wolves are the epitome of stamina, known to run 35 miles a day in pursuit of prey. They are highly misunderstood animals, who have gained the reputation of being cold blooded. In reality wolves are friendly and social creatures. Aggression is something they avoid, preferring rather to growl or create a posture to show dominance. Even though living in close knit packs provide wolves with a strong sense of family, they are still able to maintain their individuality. Wolves represent the spirit of freedom, but they realize that having individual freedom requires having responsibilities. Because wolf is a teacher and pathfinder, they come when we need guidance in our lives. Those who have a Wolf Totem will move on to teach others about sacredness and spirituality. Wolf can also teach how to balance the responsibility of family needs and not to lose one's personal identity. Wolf teaches us to develop strength and confidence in our decisions. They show us we will learn to trust our insights once we learn how to value our inner voice. This wisdom keeps us from inappropriate action. If wolf appears in your life examine where you need to develop more confidence and if you need more balance between friends, family, and yourself." - Ramona Mayer

Ramona Mayer, a native of Arkansas, has lived in Sarasota, Florida for twenty-six years and has studied fine art with nationally known artists and instructors of the Southwest Florida area. The compositional implication of the sinuous undulation of line, edge, density, depth, and the perception of space are found in her work. The truth, beauty, and simplicity of this essence is embedded in her paintings that investigate the power of color and the undulation of form that will evoke a sense of both the near and the far, the observed and the abstract, and the familiar and the exquisite. She is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and Women Contemporary Artists of Sarasota, Florida. With a degree in Fine Art and a M.S.Ed. in Exceptional Student Education, she teaches in the public schools as well as the private sector offering ?Painting With the Masters?, a fine art painting class, to children ages K-12. Her work may be seen at The Dancing Crane Gallery, 1019 10th Ave. W., Bradenton, Florida.
