For the last few years, whenever I went to walk the dog in the woods near our house, I was always reminded of the forest maze in The Secret of Monkey Island, one of my all time favourite computer games. The hero, Guybrush Threepwood, has to find his way through the forest to the secret home of the sword master, and challenge her to a duel.

Over time, I started to think about how I might paint some of the scenes from the game, and in 2020, I finally got around to making it happen, and over a period of about 3 months, I painted The Three Trials, a series of original oil paintings based on some iconic moments from the first Monkey Island game:
