Archaeology has always been a passion of mine since I worked at Vindolanda on Hadrian’s wall in the early 70s. This painting was inspired by a visit to an ancient Roman site last summer called Clunia, near Curuna del Conte in the Ribera del Duero region of Spain.
History is just below our feet. We walk on the dreams and aspirations of those who came before us. Tread carefully and leave only what you can be proud of for your footprints will one day reveal your soul.
