A painting: The unconscious frequently senses things, or synthesises out of our experience, views of things we have not been consciously aware of. A dream may depict this as a painting; subtle feelings or realisations; a view we have of or about something. Any form of artistic expression: Self expression; expressing ones feelings or intuitions; ones inner situation; creative ability. Painting as in decorating: Making changes in the way we live or feel about ourselves; expressing feelings; the impression we give to others; what ‘colour’ we are painting things, in the sense of painting a very black picture; a cover up. We can paint the town red; paint too rosy a picture. Or we might be working at changing our appearance or life style. See: photographs.
