Guardian of the Dreamtime The Painting and it's Symbolism

Sleep, our natural restorative process, has become like a distant friend that has slipped away for many of us. It's a chronic problem for many, grown from stress, illness, pain, and worries. I wanted to paint this important part of our lives, that so often gets neglected. On the canvas, my goal was to bring to life the energy of sleep, the dreamtime, that place that is all our own to heal, problem solve, and connect with our inner self and intuition.

Bringing forth the colors of night (paynes grey, black, midnight blues), I integrated in soothing colors of periwinkle blue, turquoise, aqua, and shades of white. Details of sacred spirals and power symbols adorn it's landscape.
The woman, a wise sage, is the Guardian of our Dreamtime. She brings comfort and protection during our process. Her long white braided hair is symbolic for the purity of our spirit. She wears turquoise for healing, and holds a heart to represent the healing of the heart by releasing past disappointments. She draws her strength from the Moon, the mountains in the background, and the cycles of nature.
