Artist's description:

This is the first in a new series of work called 'Stories From The Forest'.

As I watched and listened to the ancient whispers from the fire at the start of the year, I felt connected to the energies of our ancestors.

Fire is a symbol of creation, destruction and transformation.

This painting is inspired by the idea of rebirth from the old, moving forwards into a new state of being. By leaving behind old ways that no longer serve us, we can transform with renewed spirit and life for the next chapter.

Within the foreground is a Wolf, which is another symbol of death and rebirth, he also signifies intuition and following your heart, moving forwards into a new cycle with dignity and courage. From the wolfs mouth, four Butterflies flutter forth with grace and lightness, showing us how to blossom with wonders that are unfolding.
