I would like you to take your time and have a good look at this painting and try to give it your own interpretation, as one should do with most paintings.
I came to paint this painting shortly after experiencing what I describe as the darkest day of my life, as we all will one day. After losing my mother, many feelings were felt, many questions came to my head. My mind would often recall the past and in my mind's eye I would imagine where she could have gone to.
After pondering I thought to myself, the first journey must have been the long and windy road we are living and everyone needs all the help one can get to pass the test. We have aspiration to help drive a person on, the choices are left to one's conscience. Faith soothes a soul and beckons one to prepare for the second voyage to something grand.
It is not always easy to keep one's belief and one can often feel like a lost soul and we will always be faced with moments of soul searching. There too are others that may not believe, but what is to be lost?
May our searchers take us home safely............
