Intuitive Spirit Totem Animals

I love critters...always have.  So this was super fun to do.  This painting is part of the "Dancing with your Dreams" class I'm taking.  For lack of a better word I made a mess of paint and tissue paper all over my canvas.  And then I stared at it, and stared at it, and stared at it.  The awesome idea was that our spirit animal would show itself.  And one did, almost immediately.  As soon as I finished painting I could clearly see a cat in the middle of the canvas.  It was climbing or jumping and was definitely joyful.  As the paint continued to dry I started seeing fish as well.

I did my best to bring them out and give them life.

I think the cat is telling me to take risks and have fun enjoying the adventure.

And for some reason I feel like the fish might be saying, "Hey, come on, you don't eat any other living creature, stop eating us, too."  Or maybe they just jumped in to harass the cat.  But really my gut is that they're telling me not to swim with the stand out in my own way.

I dig these guys!
