Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is a symbolic painting representing a personal dream.
I was alone in the darkness. On a journey home.
During my travels, I came across a timber bridge. I was a little afraid too cross it at first. I sensed the blackness, and the deep ravine below.
There was no turning back. I had come too far. I had to go on.
I mustered the courage and crossed the timber bridge.
As I took my last step on the bridge, I touched the wooden railing. In that instance the bridge magically disappeared.
Under my hand, the railing shape-shifted into a male lion. I felt his course coat, and taut muscles.
I came to recognize he was the angel sent to guide me on the rest of my journey. The embodiment of my soul friend.
As I looked away from the lion. In the distance I saw my archetypal home.
At that moment, I knew.
This phase of my journey was over.
Lion Girl, is a visual metaphor for one's ongoing spiritual journey back to wholeness.
