About this painting

This is a love song painting about a road that leads back home!  

My brother, Micah wrote Long Time Coming Home when his wife, Suzanne had gone out of town for a conference (she’s a James Hogg scholar and professor at Stirling University).  When I first began painting this, it was an abstract. But soon the abstract turned into buildings.  And then Micah’s song came on and the road just happened.  Notice there is no “STOP” on this stop sign.  The road beckons to come on back home, without pause.

Long Time Coming Home
by Micah Gilbert

Knock on my door
Come and wake me from my sleep
Your yellow roses have haunted my dreams
It’s been too long for those memories to keep
They’ve been weighing down on me

Blow those cobwebs away
Pack that traveling case
It’s time to chase those blues awayThe winds will always blow
Rivers still will flow
But for now you know
You’ve been a long time coming home

So long ago
Underneath the evening sky
We stood watching for those northern lights
Paints a picture in my memory
Bring those nights on home to me

Shake the dust from my dreams
Send the moon on a chase
It’s time to wash those blues away

The winds will always blow
Rivers still will flow
But for now you know
You’ve been a long time coming home

The winds will always blow
Rivers still will flow
But for now you know
You’ve been a long time coming home

The winds will always blow
Rivers still will flow
But for now you know
You’ve been a long time coming home
