The Next Journey
pastel on pastel cloth

74 x 48 "


I based this image on a photograph depicting a Scottish myth. The myth stated that the laird of the manor could only reach the chapel (which existed at the end of the path through the trees) by walking around the trees. He could never look or walk directly down the path to the chapel. Only after his death, could he be carried directly through the trees to the chapel. I assumed that these trees must have had a great psychological and spiritual presence. For me, the image evokes questions of life, death, and afterlife. But, also the wonderful mysteries and unexpected joys one finds in life’s journey. This pastel inspired me to begin documentary work.
