|"The road less traveled," 6 3/4 by 10 3/4 watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper|
This scene comes from a photo I took a couple of years ago of a gravel portion of a New Mexico state "highway" in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. It's the good part of the road--a little further on, around the bend in the distance, it became a two-rutted lane track through the mountains--I was thankful for my Subaru.
I've tried to paint this before, and this is only a quick study with lots of room for improvement, since Susan asked me to paint it. But I painted what I feel, not see, on roads like this. I do think there are things that can't be painted.
But back roads make me happy, thus today's painting, from a road-less-traveled kind of buy.
