LIONESS AND CUB - Original Artwork FOR SALE Oil Painting By Leah Justyce (BaVA)
If you know my story then you know that I am a Leo, and you also know that I choose my images as a subconscious reason to release pent up emotions. Often stemming from psychological issues that have been planted in my subconscious throughout my life. Just like absolutely every other human being on this earth. We actually function from 95% of our subconscious so nearly everything we do, choose to notice in this life, say, react to, believe and so on are all a result of what is in our subconscious. A simple comment at some point in your life you could be holding onto which then you live your life according to that single statement, obviously it is mixed with millions of more statements but you get the point.
In 2015 when my son nearly died it awakened me, I spent most of my life trying to be someone I wasn't to try and keep everyone else happy, you know what. They never were. Most people are so caught up in projecting their unaware subconscious issues that those empathic people in life that were born to please, lose themselves and those ones always needing to be pleased suck the life out of you. That's where I got too, I had nothing more to give. In fact the better I became as a person, the degrees I obtained the amazing children I raised, the things I accomplished just became another reason for those ones I wanted to be loved by to hate me even more.
Long story yes!!! Well, I actually spent the past 5 years on a spiritual and psychological journey healing my mind, body and soul and many others too. So the reason that I painted this Lioness and Cub a few months after the near death of my son was that the Lioness that I am spent 18 years protecting my son and in the blink of an eye that can be taken away from you. I really struggled with the PTSD this caused, and over the next few years while studying a double degree in Criminology and Psychological Science and continuing to be the artist my soul craved to be I healed myself.
When I painted again in 2015, I did not put it together why I painted what I did. I just thought I liked an image so recreated it. But as time went on I realised that with each painting I became the person I was born to be instead of that caged human I was all of those years trying to keep the world happy instead of myself. I am now free to be me xox.
