Ready To Fly
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Prints and original now on sale! While I was refining this, I visited the website of Lynn Andrews, a favorite author who has written several books on her experiences as part of a spiritual sisterhood. I was pleased when I noticed that something she had written invoked the image of a scene very similar to what I was creating, complete with waterfalls. This must have influenced me as I worked, because I realized that without any deliberate intentions, I was creating her likeness in the face of the "angel". (For convenience, I fall into calling the figure in flight an angel even though she has no wings.)
Water symbolizes spirit and purification. The perspective of the young woman represents a point of departure from whence we can make great strides in spiritual advancement. This comes via life experiences which purify the spirit until critical mass is inevitably reached and we're ready to "take the plunge".
Different viewers often see interpretations in the images that I may not have seen, which is fun. You may see the 2 figures as the same person at 2 stages of her lifetime. Another interpretation: This is the final lifetime of the seated woman before her future self (hovering above) bids her to awaken to the fact that she is free, and can now advance beyond the level of form.
Please Note: Watermark (written over picture in lower right corner) does not appear on your purchases.
Shipping of original will be at cost.
