I painted something! By myself!!   Grin

Here's the concept behind it:

I think that most people would agree that there are cycles in life. We all experience highs and lows, and sometimes we experience situations that are similar to previous experiences and respond to these situations in a similar way. There are a number of cycles that I've recognized and revisited throughout my life. As I've revisited those various cycles, I noticed a trend:  a dampened oscillation with an overall positive trend (yay, nerd art!  Cheesy).

I've coupled the oscillation with colors that correspond to the various chakras. If you believe in such things, chakras are life energy centers located along the spine. Each chakra has a representative color. (Here's a bit more information about chakras and their various meanings: http://www.empranament.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/empranament-chakras.jpg.) Overall you can think of red being associated with base survival and a progression through the color spectrum (also a bit nerdy) through to more spiritual concerns. So early in spiritual development the cycles are more erratic. As you progress, the cycles continue but the lows are less low.

So, though I'm no Renoir, I enjoyed making my first original painting. Smiley I hope you enjoy it too.
