The Journey Home has evolved from this initial first painting, depicting land, the tip of a canoe, and water...it reminds me of ancient Japanese and Chinese poetry, the poet and his lone boat on the sea. 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 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. Like "Esto Perpetua" paintings, you will not find a human being. For me, the boat symbolizes the soul traveling home. For you, the viewer, let it symbolize whatever you may find within.
