‘Find Your Way’ perfectly fits within my ‘Love Knows No Bounds’ collection where the primary focus is the bond between the lead characters in the scene, portraying a beautiful and powerful connection that is amplified by the magical detailing that personifies my work.
My sole reason for taking on this subject was to showcase the bond between Father and Son and my narrative that drove this piece is a very personal one (have a listen to ‘Fade In / Fade Out’ by Nothing More). I am sure that many will be drawn to the image for similar reasons which is great to know, yet the aim was also to create a truly beautiful scene that can enjoyed on a number of levels, by doing justice for the fans of ‘The Lion King’ as well as just simply bring able to be enjoyed as a really pretty piece.
What we see is the point where the young lion cub sets out tentatively under the proud watch of his Father. The magical details that surround the characters portray this sense of pride and love whilst the inclusion of the butterflies represent the sense of journey as well as freedom and are a poignant detail that is becoming more and more present within my works.
This was a piece that I didn’t want to cram full of details and references but instead focus purely on the reason that the film struck a chord when I first saw it all those years ago, that wonderful bond. “Through despair and hope, through faith and love”
