Do you remember this?


I posted this a while back as an experiment and wasn't quite sure what to do.  












 
So after my trip around 7 states in 6 days, it inspired me to do this based loosely on a camera phone image.  What do you think?

Drawing for the Hoover Dam paintnig will be done after Malissa comes home from school.



12x24 oil on canvas

Sheila, I wanted to pass on the Passion for Painting award to you, to let you know how much I love your work and I think it's great how much you do for the animal homes. I've posted on my blog here:

Hi Sheila!

I love what you did with this. Wonderful work!

Carrrie Jacobson said...

Hey, Sheila, I love the addition of the road... There's a guy whose work I saw years and years ago - I think he's from South or North Carolina - nearly all of his paintings are roadways, going along into the future, going .... who knows where? They were beautifully atmospheric, like yours, and intriguing, exciting, all that great stuff. This is lovely!

Gwen Bell said...

Wow! Love it...very dreamy. It has a spiritual feel to it if that makes sense.

Dean Grey said...

Funny thing is, at first glance I assumed both images were photos!

Isn't that all that needs to be said?
