The Guardians

Human beings, I believe, were meant to be the planet’s care takers .Our dangerous arrogance has enabled us to abuse nature in all forms. Consequently, we see ourselves as separate from nature rather than an extension of it.  The green lion represents the masculine side of nature (predatory, savage, protective) while the goddess (mother nature) represents the feminine side (nurturing, gentle, supportive). The painting is intended to suggest a balance between these two energies, and a respect for the spiritual ties that bind us all.
