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 !!
