A long time – years in fact – to complete, this large canvas ‘The Journey’ (6′ x 4′) is all about my Father’s dementia and deterioration – his ‘journey’ into a world of confusion, fear and ultimately his demise. There are many significant and very personal parts to this work and his memory was a constant throughout its creation over time. I found it uplifting to paint as he was a wonderful and kind human being. Others may see different things in this painting but the joy it brings to me is of the essence of the father I loved.
