Two Roads, 8x10
'Take me home country roads'.....'the high road and the low road'.....Robert Frost's 'road less traveled'.....all thoughts I had but the most frequent one while painting this was 'I wonder where they go?' and 'If I just started driving on one of them and didn't look back....'. It must be all the possibilities that roads possess that makes them appear so often in our music and literature. Hope and possibility. Isn't it what keeps us all going....
Of course not everyone has the wanderlust gene. Some folks have the 'baked potato in front of a warm fire let's stay at home' gene. All good.
OK. For reasons that will be revealed if you click on the link, that reminds me of a TED talk my good friend Gillian sent me. This a fascinating piece that kept me captivated as much by the subject as the unique person that was presenting it. When I have my next life I would like to live it by following the road of my instincts as much as she has. You can see this inspiring video HERE.
Go paint draw sculpt mold create something.
