Art Work Path to the Mountain Top
© Joseph Parker
A print of this work has hung in Sandy’s studio since 1975,
and is in the current office of Good Music.
Commentary by the Artist: "Attaining the mountain top has a spiritual meaning as follows:
All human souls on this planet are in a school of learning to perfect themselves in order to attain a higher state of being.
I have painted the mountains very steep because as the soul masters the difficulties on the path,
more difficult tests lie ahead. Once the soul reaches the peak, it attains what the Buddhists call Nirvana.
Then the soul does not need to be reborn, but continues its evolution in the Spiritual Sun that surrounds the physical sun. On the top of the mountain is a holy being radiating out love in all directions."
Joseph Parker has the honor of being the "grand dad" of all the current visionary artists
- releasing his canvases as early as the mid 1960’s - leading the way for all the others that have followed. At a certain point in his life, Joseph had some transformation spiritual experiences that abruptly shifted his life's focus
from being a "business man" to a visionary artist. His characteristic kaleidoscopic sunsets represent to him, not just beautiful sunsets, but actual living higher-dimensional light beings radiating brilliant rays of Light and Life! Joseph currently lives with his wife Joyce in southern California, where he is currently devoting
much of his energies to philosophical spiritual pursuits. He is one of the featured artists in Iasos’ video program.
