Labyrinth I

I was inspired to create this painting when I walked a labyrinth for the first time about three months ago.  While I was walking I was reminded that the path of my life, or anyone's, has wide parts and narrow, easy passages and difficult ones, ones that take your breath away by their beauty and ones that cause you concern, etc.  I imagined a labyrinth design in which I could express that.   It contains big and small steps and symbols of some of my encounters and experiences along the way.  This one is called "Personal Journey"  It is 22" x 22"  While researching how to draw a labyrinth, I discovered some very intriguing labyrinth patterns.  Consequently, I want to paint more of these. This is the first painting of a series that will be at least five labyrinths.  A whole new direction for me!


  1. Carolyn, I really like this a lot. Let me know if you want to sell it in the future!

  2. It's gorgeous...I like what you wrote about the paths we take and how much variety there is in all of our lives. Your painting conveys that in a very rich manner!

  3. It's beautiful, Carolyn. It sort of reminds me of your I Ching series - some of my favorites.
