This print comes from a deep connection I have to the Native American culture. I drew this woman when I was 16, but painted the background more recently which gave her a universe.
There is a Native American anecdote I heard that I now live by. In this story a father explains to his son that "We essentially have two minds. One if full of hate, negativity, fear, panic, etc.. We call that the bad wolf. The good wolf, on the other hand, is the mind which holds in it optimism, love, courage, strength and the like. There is a constant battle between these two wolves.
The son asks, "which wolf wins in the end?" The father answers, "the one that you feed."
This print reminds me of the strength, courage, freedom and love which are qualities we all have and should "feed" on a daily basis. When we do, we overcome fear, panic, doubt and all, and the good wolf shines on.
