The unknown power within
I was swimming through a crowd of open-mouthed sharks.
In my dream I was focusing on staying stoic. It was to prevent that the sharks would perceive in me any weakness triggering them to attack me. Fortunately, I managed to make it through the other side of the crowd of sharks.
When I came out of the water, I understood that they were also trying to appear stoic because they feared me too. They were hoping I would not realize that I had great power. In truth, they dreaded I would harm them if I discovered my strength.
I always wanted to illustrate this dream in a painting. However, it is only now that I got the inspiration to depict the scene. The painting reveals what the sharks would have seen when they saw me.
My strength and steadfastness in hardships is represented by a muscular beast. The beast is a bull, with red eyes, standing in the mouth of a bull shark. It is a powerful image that I believe a shark could be impressed with in my dream!
Let me know what this painting evokes for you in the comments!
