When walking a labyrinth, a person travels a well-defined path that eventually winds up in the center and then returns to the entry following the same path. I worked on this painting in more-or-less the same way, and incorporated various symbols and steps as I moved toward the center. On the way back, I refined those symbols and steps, and reflected that we don't really get that chance in real life!!! I think this labyrinth painting reflects the beauty of living...even when there are some "snakes" and "bugs" along the way...and I am very happy with the colors in this work.
Working in a series is very rewarding and leads to thoughts like those above.....and more. I am continuing with labyrinth studies and will be posting more. This one is 20" x 20". I will be framing these in simple black wooden frames with no mats, using "Artspacers" to separate the art from the glass.
