Painting Symbolism 

'New Beginnings' is a hand-painted Indigenous Australian artwork. It is a simple yet powerful painting that reminds us all of the strength and hope within us. In the centre is a turtle, a symbol that teaches us about resilience and the importance of moving forward at our own pace, no matter the challenges we face. In Aboriginal culture, the turtle can represent protection, endurance and the connection between the land and water, reminding us of the balance and journey through life. Each dot and line in the painting connects to these ideas, showing the different experiences we all go through; tough times, good times, and times of change.

This artwork speaks to the heart, encouraging everyone to keep pushing through difficulties and to always aim for new beginnings. It was inspired by life's ups and downs and how you keep going, like the turtle, always moving forward. It's a reminder of where I come from and where I'm headed and it's filled with the same hope and strength I try to bring into every new day.
