“As most of you know, psyche is the Greek word for soul. It’s also the Greek word for butterfly. If you have a protagonist in a story whose name is Psyche, you might expect that she will go through a major transition and crisis. Will she survive it? Will she come through and be transformed, or will she die? That’s one way of looking at the Psyche myth.”
I painted the image at the top in November 2015 in Ibiza, Spain. What I knew at the time was it was a painting of Psyche floating on the River Styx. What I didn’t know was it was an announcement to me that I was about to begin an initiation that would last almost 4 years! I was about to enter the underworld. In the painting she is going towards something in the past.
Four months later I had the first in a series of heart attacks that lead to open heart surgery.
Just like Psyche I would be faced with challenges, I would be fearful and I would find the resources and helpers to get through each challenge.
The image below taken in another boat. Part of my spiritual lineage is Egyptian. What I know about this painting is that the heart is healed and it is in a boat moving forward in life. It was painted on an eclipse where the masculine and feminine energy is in balance. Much of my initiation and healing has been about balancing the inner masculine and feminine.
I also understand from this image that when two hearts come together in love, a shared heart is created that is greater than both of you.
This is a much deeper story but my intention here is to show the before and after paintings. I can always trust the vision in my art. It is predictive.m
