The Sunrise Phoenix is the first picture I have created that has personal symbolic meaning and represents where I am at this stage in my life.
The Phoenix represents the rebirth of oneself, through the sacrificial burning and cleansing of the old self.
This is a cycle I have undergone a few times in the past, each time taking me higher and to new levels of awareness and understanding!
