Lonely Road - Camino de Santiago Surreal Spanish Street Oil Painting
Surreal expressionist night landscape oil painting with bluesy lonely traveler on the road theme, inspired by a whimsical Spanish town on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela (Way of St James) hike. 2011.
A work from the artist's “Spain Camino Series”, a colourful expressionist journey inspired by the artist's sojourn on the Camino de Santiago (Way of St James) pilgrim route.
Title: Lonely Road
Medium: Oil on Ready-to-Hang Canvas
Dimensions: 24 x 20 x 0.5 in
The lonely road beckons..
“Come”, whispers the lil' houses ahead, “ your dreams and wishes are just
around the corner.” “Don't be afraid, we'd prop you up”, says the merry crossing. “Yes!” sinister sign gestures. “We're just a little shadow, we won't hurt you”, murmurs looming darkness.. And so lonely road goes. Because this is his existence, his destiny, to go on regardless. From beginning to end. Somewhere, somehow, it'd end eventually. Even if it feels like neverending, as it oft does, an illusion nevertheless. What is life but a path. What is freedom but a choice. Lonely road will just go on..
The artwork is signed on the front, varnished and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
