Walking the Dog - Lost in a Dark Wood

Walking the Dog - Lost in a Dark Wood

About this work

 This image reminded me of John Bunyan's 'Pilgrim's Progress', hence the title.

Recently I got lost in a strange wood with a dog. I thought the dog would lead me home. No chance! The dog was just as lost as I was.

I spent all afternoon painting on the beach. Just as it was getting cold and I was thinking of packing up, I did this painting in a hurry. It is the best of the lot!

About this work

I adapted an image I saw in a newspaper. It made me think of people rushing to an fro in the underground, you can never be sure who is with whom, and what, if anything, is going on between them.
