1000 Miles: Walking & Painting the Way of Saint James
Hi everyone, I’d like to share my journey with you. This is painting 1 of 200 that I painted as I walked 1000 Miles Walking & Painting the Way of Saint James.
From September 1 2018 to March 3 2019, I walked 1000 miles (1600km) alongside my donkey from Le-Puy-en-Velay to Finisterre. Every 5 miles along the entire route, I set up my easel and painted. Each painting took 3 hours, the whole journey took 6 months. By the time I reached Finisterre, I had created a collection of 200 paintings, all painted on location during my journey, in all weathers and conditions.
The plan was to share my paintings with you through a touring exhibition. Thanks to Covid, I don’t know when this will now be possible. So, starting today, I’d like to share them with you, one at a time. I hope you enjoy this collection of art that honours the Way, and that it brings back many memories or inspires future hopes and dreams.
LIMITED EDITION BOOK OF All 200 PAINTINGS and accompanying narrative is now available here*.
