For a new year.
For all explorers and everyone who makes a journey; the one thing you can count on finding at the end of your travail is the road back home. I painted this small, 10 x 10 inch, oil self portrait about the travels, both real and metaphorical, that we make. The oar in the road is a reference to the Odyssey and the punishment that Odysseus had to endure for blinding Polyphemus in which after reaching his home he was forced to leave again with a ships oar on his shoulder and walk until he met someone who didn't know what it was. For all your travels, real and metaphorical, the best, and a happy new year to all.
