|"Look down that lonesome road," 5 x 7 watercolor, 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold press paper|
Long ago I heard a song that seemed to draw me to faraway places, "Look Down that Lonesome Road."
Years later, it's no wonder I love back roads, less traveled roads, sparsely settled, free of traffic, roads that beckon you, speak of discovery around the next bend or over the hill, especially in New Mexico, Oklahoma or Texas where there are plenty of wide-open spaces
I looked up the song and found it is a 1927 with music by Nathaniel Shilkret and lyrics by Gene Austin, written in the style of an African-American spiritual.
Thus today's little watercolor, the first of March, after an earlier failure where I was too uptight to be traveling that road.
Here are two you tube. links to the song, if you wish to add some music to the watercolor..
