The Lion and the Lamb

In most of my work, I create powerful images for many to like, but the meaning behind the images I purposely keep very subtle.  This painting is not so subtle, it's very clear what it's about.  I think this actually made the painting harder to conceptualize and create.  If there already exists a known or an expected thing then when one presents their own take on this known it gets scrutinized even more so.  In addition, the symbolism is so well known that the inclusion or the exclusion of certain items gets questioned a lot.  Which, I think is actually good.  It creates interaction and discussion. 

 

I like that.

I hope you do too.
