The Serpents Gift
This painting was inspired by a dream in which a very large snake that stood fully erect over 8′ tall sprang upon me and wrapped me in his coils. He then laid his head upon mine and looked into my eyes. At the moment when I thought I would die he released me. I felt something and looked at my wrists. Each wrist had two fang marks on it that issued a drop of blue liquid or blood that then turned red and then transformed into a blue/red bud that blossomed. The flowers were Rose of Sharon.
