Is it better to travel hopefully?
Oil on canvas
The journey itself may be risky, but our expectations for the end often colour that journey, and when we arrive we can be disappointed. Is hope, (and illusion) better than facing up to how it really is?
I have represented the thought and implementation of the journey with an oil bar directional line, and the ‘arrival’ covered so that it is not clear where the journey is leading and what may be there but the off-white oil bar is a striking journey image of decision.
