HAPPY YEAR OF THE DRAGON!
Well, its safe to say this painting stole half my soul :P Even worse I painted like a mad woman today to finish it and thanks to the Swedish Daylight in the winter...I had about 15 minutes before sunset to take those photos lol.
So its safe to say it DOES look alot better in real life ;) Sorry folks me and my camera skills once again!

The whole painting is chalk full of symbolism which i carefully panned out. As I said, its year of the dragon, inspiration for this painting! So for me the dragon is 2012, wearing a bit of golden armor acquired from the hardships of last year. The dragon, which doesnt look really chinese but has influences, is a keeper of balance, the ying and yang. So, I added the scales in her hands, in a pose as if shes guarding it. Which for me is important this new year, keeping balance and stability which had been lost for some time now.

The mountains are the long way there is to climb to reach all the goals and resolutions, the mist the inbetween phases, things you just cant plan between the now and the then.
I wanted to add a rabbit in the corner to symbolize the past year, and also my birth year (i was born 1987, year of the rabbit) but I ran out of time :( *cry*
This was a long and laborous project, but it was a good way to start the new year.
Painting in symbolism and challenging myself quite a bit with some difficult tasks
But I hope you all enjoy it and Happy Chinese New Year again! :D
