This painting was made in many, many layers. I started it in my early explorations of cold wax and returned to it – adding layers and experience  – over years. The crosshatching motion of the work over time gave depth and seemed to embody the experience of the painting.

It isn’t specifically about any place but is something of a journey-man painting – as it takes the essence of my experiences over several artists’ residences across choppy lakes and along moody shorelines. Although the palette is dark it is ultimately an uplifting piece – signaling home in the midst of a torrent.  We are never forever, truly lost, we can always re calibrate, chart out course and navigate our way towards a sense of home.
