I don't know what to really say about this. More than anything I just want to read what you have to say about it. I'm speechless, but that's a good thing. It's making me think and I think I like it.

so glad the painting has got to you. This was an image that I slowly discovered without knowing where I was heading...only knowing whether I was getting warm or cold. I knew only that a language of hands kept attracting me. I leave some paintings propped up when I have finished them in order to integrate them and see perhaps what I have arrived at. which in this case was that the body ( male/female) has surrendered its weight to the earth by lying down and the hand we see on the right is receiving from the earth ( light/energy?) and is giving it back with the open hand on the left. I do not expect any of this to be picked up, people see their own stories hopefully. It's nice to be asked though !!

After Her long eternity of stoic slumber in the Earth's womb, She will rise. And once again, She will renew the Earth and throw off the shackles of death. She will bring beauty, peace, and harmony to all. She will now and forever...rise.

This is just a little story I thought of after looking at this piece. Beautiful work. :)

For some reason I thought that maybe you were quoting an excerpt from World on The Turtle's Back or some other mythical tale. Turns out you wrote that all by your lonesome, and I love it!

This image has all the seeming of the human form being crafted in the heavens where all the elements and particles merge together through such process that defies all psychological and logic thinking.

I also see a distinct side-view face in the sky just above the right-hand-side shoulder of the screen --- otherwise the left shoulder --- when you move you eyes inward to the left of the screen a little, then up: there is what appears to be a closed eye, nose, mouth, a chin and lightly shaded jawbone line, an ear just above that, and a string of long, braided hair in the clouds going downward to the right of the screen.

This picture is absolutely a magnificent work of ingenious art.

maybe beautiful is enough.I don't mind people finding meanings that I have not seen. But as you have asked, the meaning was not clear as I was painting and then it seemed to me that the figure had surrendered to the earth and the right hand ( to onlooker) is taking and receiving and the left hand is giving back to the earth, completing the cycle.Hope this helps !
