©A.K.SIMON - Returning Home - 8"x8" oil on linen - $100
Right before I got married almost 34 years ago, I returned home for the summer. My lease was up on my apartment and there was only two months before I would be married. So, I moved back in with my mother and stepfather. I have decided, once you leave its borders, you can never return again. Nothing was the same, I had grown beyond my home.
So, here is the quote for today: “Returning home is the most difficult part of long-distance hiking; You have grown outside the puzzle and your piece no longer fits.”
― Cindy Ross
This piece was a struggle and I feel that shows in the work. But, is that a bad thing? There is quite a bit of texture that's lost in the picture and many different kinds of marks. Sure it could be more successful, but it's where I am today and I cannot change that! On to tomorrow!!!
