I've noticed that, while wolves aren't in every painting I do, they show up a bunch.
And here are a few more, all the way to the one I did a few weeks ago about teaching my toddler to howl. 😂
They don't have much meaning to me, other than the stories around howling at the moon and my connection to the moon. I also like their wildness and connection to the Earth. And looking at them all together like this tells me that I love teal wolves. 😂😂😂
Here's what I found with Google concerning Wolves:
Positive meaning of wolf emphasizes a deep connection with your intuition and instincts. On the negative side, the wolf could represent a perceived threat or a lack of trust in someone or your own feelings or actions. This spirit animal also reflects sharp intelligence in dealing with important matters.
The wolf symbolizes a strong connection with instincts and when it appears as a guide, it could point to a way of perceiving and understanding the world around you that works similarly.
Whether the wolf appears in physical form or in a dream or meditation, it may reveal that you’re using your instincts and intuition to grasp a situation well. The fact that your wolf guide shows up could also be a call to use this capacity to deal with a recent challenge you’ve experienced in your life.
This resonates with me well in my current life. So perhaps I'm being led to create more meaning for them in my work, and include them more often. What is something you have noticed in your work over the years that you hadn't previously seen?
