Goin' my way? by jezviking Goin' my way? by jezviking
'Goin' my way'
oil on canvas
50cm x 60cm

This concept I had painted a couple of years ago (under an alias) and wanted to revisit it. Again the scenery is inspired by my trip to Coober Pedy, the layout for the road sketched whilst my husband drove.

It has a multitude of meanings, some dark some ironic.

*edit * Put up a better quality pic
The original is for sale in my etsy shop: [link]

I love the dark dreary colouration, and the bright-dullness of the red balloons. Very good picture!

Do you like red balloons? I've noticed in the last three paintings or so that I've viewed that you have red balloons in them. Why not another color? Not nitpicking or complaining, just curious.

Haha! I would NOT want to pick up that hitchhiker.

Red. Hmmm... Could be blood. Could be something else entirely.

Death, well... Clearly someone's going to die. We all die eventually.

You could have been very easily been thinking about how we're all on "the road of life" when you thought of this.

That sky looks a tad ominous. Bad storms a'comin'!

Great concept! The balloons give me the feeling of the loss of our childhood.
