Hanging at the "Archetype" show at In Bocca al Lupo Fine Art Gallery is this painting, "Pilgrimage." It is exciting to hear people respond to a painting, like this one, with their own stories. One couple told me all about a memorable trip they took to Jordan and Israel. Another gentleman talked about his recent trip to Cameroon.
It hardly matters what my original idea was when I painted this piece. It has become something much bigger, with a broader geography, and many more layers of story. As each new person sees it and responds, it becomes even more textured by their experiences.
