On one small internet artist community we have a tradition of creating a collaborative Christmas calendar each year (...or almost every year!). Simply put the idea is this: each artist picks one day between 1st and 24th of December and paints, photographs or some other way produces a piece of work for that particular day for others to view and enjoy.
So my day for the last years calendar was 13th (hence the label 13 on the side the building) while at the same time this painting was a quiet homage to a good friend I lost last year. I wanted to include elements that deal with or symbolize journey, the unknown, far reaches and search for meaning and place… and to create an image that was uplifting, beautiful and peaceful.
And silent. The kind of image where you can write the story yourself.
I have a very clear idea of what I’m seeing in this image, but I don’t wanna spoil it for you too much :) Just enjoy! And feel free to comment and criticize of course!
