Animal Totem - A "Life Book" project
The latest "Life Book" project I have done came from Guadalupe Brizuela Cabal. "Life Book" can be found at www.willowing.ning.com
This painting is based on finding a totem animal through meditation with which we try to embody our deepest hope for the future. I wrote my hope on the page as the first layer....several times, using it as an affirmation as I wrote. I beleieve my life long animal spirit guide is a brown bear but have had others come to support me from time to time. Guadalupe used an eagle but I found the eagle came to me anyway during my meditation so I went with it. As I painted it though, it seemed to me to be very young, an egret I think it would be called.
