"Stay Within Me"
The color and Light in this painting always gives me a sense of serenity and healing. The tree looks like its been through a long winter of dark clouds. Light has broken through and is healing. The Raven is symbolic of a new enlightenment of the great mystery. The Light also represents the Great Spirit. The tree represents a person. The mound of earth beneath is its gathered life experiences with the places and people its roots are invested into.
