I have been drawing quite a lot on my last trip. Looking back at it, I was indubitably also processing some events that unfolded before my eyes. There are different kinds of inspiration and drawing, or at least sketching, while traveling can be an interesting source.
I didn’t have any eraser, and though I had multiple pencils with me, I used only one and the same.
This was the last drawing before my return and it was unfinished. This is how far I got:
Sometimes, there is a fork in the road, but one of the options is an obvious loop. Some like jumping through hoops and running in loops but, for me, I love the journey too much as to ever choose that path.
It is like many of my artworks, a drawing showing THE JOURNEY, and some of the many choices we encounter. I will probably continue working on it and finish it.
Addendum: I have added some more lines and curves to the drawing. As such it will remain:
My tiny painting from 2016, Crossroads (above), is a nice example of a painting with a similar theme.
The meaning and the feeling behind the above drawing and the above painting are obviously completely different.
Another artwork that comes to mind is Reaching or Wherever I May Roam.
