"Paladin is a light-bearer and a truth-bringer, an original thinker and a spiritual warrior who ushers in a new light that allows all of us to see our world with new eyes . . . and take us more deeply into understanding our own spiritual journey." * Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing *
". . . the leading Navajo modern artist." * Newsweek *
"Painting the Dream introduces us to David Paladin's extraordinary visionary paintings where the archetypal beings of all native cultures seem part of one great Cosmic tribe. Highly recommended." * Alex Grey, artist and author of Sacred Mirrors and Transfigurations *
"This is an extrarodinarily beautiful and powerful book--the one I return to more than any other when trying to share with visitors my understanding of the visionary and shamanic path toward wholeness and healing. Lynda Paladin's selections, of art and complementary written pieces by David Paladin, are brilliant. Painting the Dream is a treasure. It not only delights the eye but nourishes the soul." * Jay Bremyer, author of The Dance of Created Lights and The Chymical Cook *
"Paladin's artistic gifts and all-encompassing spiritual philosophy live on in his art and in this extraordinary and highly recommended book." * Southwest BookViews, Winter 2004, Vol.3 No.1 *
"A welcome and commended addition to any personal or academic American Art History, Native American Studies, or Metaphysical Studies collection." * The Midwest Book Review *
"A well-balanced monograph of a man and artist who led an astonishing life. . . . a fascinating book." * New Mexico Magazine *
