The "Dreaded" Project

I had done this drawing in colored pencil on provided paper for the Brooklyn Art Library's Project Dread. The surface of the paper began the reject the layers of color as I added them and removed the previously laid color. SO... marker it is. Changed the appearance greatly as you would imagine. My disdain for the legless creatures didn't prevent me from photographing them when witnessed. The snake has good meaning and since this was a harmless brown snake, I'll run with positive rather than the representation of the serpent devil. The snake animal meaning is powerfully connected to life force and primal energy. When the snake spirit appears in your life it likely means that healing opportunities, change, important transitions and increased energy are manifesting. The spiritual guidance offered is promoting personal growth. The snake may appear when you are stepping into the unknown and need support to move further. Also snake can serve as a reminder of staying grounded as you move through changes. I think I may look at snake a little kinder, but still choose to keep my distance.
