"Never ending cycles, the way of the north, when life and death matter equally. Coping with anxiety, some nights, I would wake up at 3am after being awakened by a vivid dream. I would lay there alone with my thoughts and my emotions. Surrounded by silence, I can hear my own inner voice. As I watch my mind, all kinds of things would pass through and one of those things that I would often wonder about is Life and Death. Combined with my fascination for the old Norse and how they celebrate life through death, I often ponder about life after death, and how we become this form of energy when we ‘Return to the Source’ and transition to the next."
Note: The special effects in this painting, which can only be seen under a UV light, is to highlight the magickal element.
