This marks the 200th painting posted by me! I am also turning my focus inward again. Ouroboros is an ancient symbol of a serpent or dragon chasing its own tail. It was used a lot in the mystical practice of alchemy. In the center of the composition is a gyroscope. I am not always aware of the meaning of pieces. Some paintings reveal themselves to me decades later. I believe I was looking for balance in my life. My partner wanted a baby. I was conflicted and ambitious for reasons I could not fully admit, or understand, at that time.
