Janus as the Source

Obviously this is a representation of the month of January.
Janus is the god of the new year - with two faces one looking backward towards the old year and the other looking forward. This painting is full of symbolism from bridges to running water and Carp. Not to mention, briars, hair, snowdrops and doorways!
As a learning experience I certainly think that the use of colour is far better than in my first painting (December) they are brighter and clearer so i was very happy with the results. Obviously, being severely self critical, there are things that I would like to improve, but on the whole I thought it was definitely a step forward.
I hope you enjoy it!
