The Journey Home: Rising Dreams
The Journey Home series evolved from one initial painting depicting land, the tip of a canoe, and water...it evokes ancient Japanese and Chinese poetry: the poet and his lone boat on the sea under a moonlit sky. As a poet and a thinking artist, I'm reminded that we are on a journey...and to grow and find our way, turn from all we know, have known, being fearless...to a unknown sea in our metaphoric lone boat. Over the years, in my personal life, I've done that very thing. Lessons in all experiences! I've since done more of these paintings, and think they will continue to appear on my easel by magic. For me, the small boat symbolizes the soul traveling home. For you, the viewer, let it symbolize whatever you may find within.
