Here is another painting from my ‘travelling/homesick sketches’ series.

I love my return journeys (and I’m sure that the feeling is mutual), just because of the pleasant memories that I get when I think of the satisfying things that I can do when I get there.But on this occassion, my sketch here focussed on the powers and the people that watch and pray over me as I journey not only across the roads but also across life. This inspired a sketch that I eventually developed into this painting filled with my thoughts while, on my way home.

I used, brushes, finger painted, gel mediums, recycled plastics, ball point pen and, a bead.

“As I travel Recovery’s way

Help me conquer myself I pray,

As down Recovery’s road I roam.

May I find myself returning home,

Exorcise the demons on the past,

And find victory that will last,

My fears may I now overcome,

With bitterness and resentment be done,

May I be willing to forgive,

And daily in victory live,

Seeking to conquer myself may I find,

Inner strength and lasting peace of mind".

    Oh my goodness edy… this really feels multidimensional and a bit pagan to boot.. your use of all those mediums!

  • Thanks Linaji, I’m quite picky about textures and I tend to use a lot and continue until the work finally speaks to me :D

    These are like two eggs in a womb – twins, but paternal twins (two worlds, same source). Such beautiful design and texture, Edy. Using contemporary hieroglyphics to tell your story is wonderful and works well here.

  • Thanks Frannie! I always enjoy your in-depth analysis of my art :D
