Stepping into The Fire
Its very unusual for me to start and stop while working on my art, I had started this painting around the time of a significant eclipse of Moon moving across the Sun in 2012. As usual at these times all kinds of outside interferences were trying to distract me from working and then my connection to the painting stopped, turmoil stopped and felt I needed to start on a new piece called Phoenix Rising. After a few days of drafting out the new art the energy switched again and was reconnected to the previous painting again and its guidance. I felt the painting as a fiery portal that stepping through would release attachments to the past and the future and simply residing in the now, like the still centre of the painting while everything revolved around.
