Stopping at a bluff overlooking the river, to lose himself in the melody of her song, and the light of the sun bouncing of her rippling surface, he picked his nose.  Rolling the snot between his fingers, he fell deep in thought. He found his mind wander to thoughts of Jesus.  Did some people get high to connect with this world class Deity?  Why was he so popular?
Reaching into his pocket he pulled out a folded piece of paper. On the page were written a list of fresh phone numbers belonging to cute real estate agents he had seen on bill boards. He had already been with a handful since collecting them.  
Ripping up the page he let those numbers scatter into the river like ashes of his former self.  He promised himself that he would do two things.
That these two things would guide him on the path. Just as the river bed guides the river which she carries, so too the river carves the river bed which carries her. From there she finds a way to the ocean. He knew that wholeness is connecting with the whole and that ultimately the entire process from the galaxies, to the day to day events was something that he was a part of as much as anything else. So he thought about the two things that would guide him, and searched for the paper they were written on. Turns out they were written on the back of the page with the phone numbers.  He was ok with renting anyway.

Nathaniel Campbell
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Canada
Born to BC's west coast, I began an interest in art at the age of six.
Taking private lessons at the age of 9, I studied charcoal.
After majoring in art through high school in an advanced placement program, I studied design and illustration at UFV where I received my diploma. The emphasis in that program was visual communication, which plays a key roll in my art today.
Upon graduating I worked with a graphics company that did murals. I learned a lot about planning large scale paintings from Dean Lauze, who was a big contributor in my development as an artist.
In 2005 Joseph, my business partner and brother, and I, started a clothing line called Brethren Empirical which featured graphic art and custom touches. After running Brethren clothing and selling limited run T shirts to boutiques for a few years, I returned my focus to fine art.
While the main medium is oil, the occasional wood piece, gives me a chance to employ the chainsaw. Regardless of medium, nature and natural forms are emphasized in my work, often with strong narratives using a symbolic language. I'm really interested in the power of myths and totems so animals are used for this purpose. Dreams also use a similar type symbolic language to tell us things. Since my dreams have been quite lucid at times, a dream journal has become one resource in producing ideas and images.
My ultimate goal, is to create beautiful work with mystique, to use skill to deliver a message to the heart, and all the while projecting from a place of masculinity.
