The meaning of this painting, in my opinion, is showing re-birth.
The phoenix is the most well-known symbol of re-birth, as it is said that the fiery bird dies and rises again from it's ashes. I believe the phoenix is a powerful symbol on a personal level. To symbolize the strength to start all over again. Even when it's the last thing you want to do. 
On a larger scale, it represents the birth of humanity. And also the death of humanity. 
And that we have a special purpose in this world. 
So, even if we fail, we have the strength to start all over again. 

I love this painting, dearly. 

I'll be adding a few more touch ups, but this is the last edition of the Work In Progress. 
I enjoy seeing the changes and progress of the painting. I probably should have photographed it more frequently to show a more distinct process. But, I'll just have to do that next time.
