EL CAMINO, A PERSONAL JOURNEY – 36″ x 34″ – oil & mixed mediums on Belgian linen canvas
This was one of the most wonderful painting experiences for me. I was asked to create a painted diary to mark a very important time in the life of an unusual young woman. She walked the Camino de Santiago and was changed forever. At first I was intimidated by having to interpret her story as a memento of meaning for her. We spent a lot of time talking and pouring over photos delving deeply into her journey from her own very personal insights. This gave me rich fodder for the interweaving of our combined contribution – Her story and my painting.
