I had no intention of it being a series of pen and ink sketches. It was supposed to be a collection of multicoloured textural studies but, as always, things didn't turn out as I expected...I'm rather pleased.
For those of you who have asked, I'm not sure what the red path represents...other than a journey. It's one of those symbols which appears in various forms in the art of so many cultures, meaning different but often very similar things...perhaps I'm referring to one of them, or perhaps all of them and maybe some others I've not pinned down yet too. As for where it is going and where it will end up...I've about five double pages before the journey is complete and I'm afraid that at the moment I've no idea. It does have a narrative of sorts but I'm not sure there's a punch line.
So, take what meaning you want from my sketches and may your own path through the trees of 2012 lead you somewhere beautiful and interesting.
Happy New Year!
