In Egyptian mythology, the phoenix is a beautiful bird that lives for 500 years. It builds its own funeral pyre with wood and spices, sets itself on fire and rises reborn again from the ashes more beautiful than ever to live for another 500 years. The Phoenix Rising is a symbol for resurrection, immortality, triumph over adversity and the indomitable power of the human spirit.
I painted this phoenix toward the end of a long period of illness. My energy and sense of well being miraculously began to return upon it's completion.
Today's Quotation: "The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook."
