There are two separate paintings of a similar image as this one. They both feature the same theme, one of traveling into the unknown, taking a risk, and journeying beyond one’s comfort zone. This painting is the oil painting of the pair and simply called 13. The colors are more ethereal and mysterious in this as a car travels a road, tires leaving marks after the route marker 13. Is it stopping the journey? Is the traveler faced with a decision? Or is it simply an image to make us all think about going around that unknown bend in life and the masks we all wear to hide the fear?
This painting is oil on canvas, completed in 2000, measuring 28″ by 20″
