Pilgrim Road!

The latest painting in my pilgrim roads series.

Have been thinking further about the idea of pilgrimage, working towards my painting for the Engedi Arts exhibition in Colwyn Bay over Easter, on the Easter Story.  The Road to Emmaus (my theme) is a story about travelling to learn, and finally, when all is revealed, to understand that the truth was there before us all the time.  I love this quote from TS Elliott in ‘Little Gidding’:

We shall not cease from exploration,
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started,
And know the place for the first time.

I guess that’s what pilgrimage is all about.
