The Archer

from 10.00

The Archer carries no agenda other than to speak her truth. Her truth is pure because it is arises from simple observation. Truth loves her, protects her and brings agility and speed. Her bow and arrow are not to hurt, or wound, but serve to direct her energy into a single pointed focus, an intensity of gaze that burns through any subterfuge or confusion. She has a clear line of sight into the heart of any situation. 

“Through her suffering she has come to know herself. She has travelled over and over into the darkness. She knows that comfort only comes only through discomfort.”  ( from the Book of SHE By Sara Avant Stover)

“Her words can be sharp as arrows or soft as feathers. She has an uncanny ability to know which are needed, for she is the one who helps lead us to the truth and awakens us from our dream like existence." (from Kathy Shimpock)  

This painting arises from my search for freedom. The path to freedom may be perceived as one of unlearning and non-doing because by becoming aware of, and releasing attachment to the things of this world; our sense of self and attachments to our desires; unhelpful beliefs and by rediscovering  our more authentic selves we move towards greater freedom. 

The Archer symbolises the strength to see things as they really are, and to be swift and decisive. She reminds us of how strong we are and how capable we are to make the changes that are necessary for us to live a life founded in joy, truth and love.

I painted this picture living in a tiny one room cabin high in the mountains of Tasmania. It had been raining solidly for 4 days. The waterfall next to our cabin roared and the pademelons fluffed up their fur to stay dry and warm.

A thick cloud covered the mountains showing the occasional glimpses of trees in silhouette. By lamplight I painted while a little wood stove kept us warm. Hamish (bless him dearly) read aloud to me from the wonderful Farseer books by Robin Hobb.  

This is a print of an original gouache and ink painting on paper by Claire Hansen and is available in three sizes.  Small is on A5 paper,  medium is on A4 paper, large is printed on A3 paper, on each of my prints the image is as large as it can be leaving only a thin white border to assist with framing. 

Each of our giclee prints are made on archival papers and inks designed not to fade for 100+ years and are signed by the artist.

We provide free postage within Australia and New Zealand. Our international postage cost is a flat $8AU. 

Thank you for your interest in my art! :D
