I just love exploring the back roads in the rural areas, I always find something interesting. My latest painting is based on a photo that resulted from one of those days of exploration.
"The Old Road to the Old Shed"
10" X 8", Acrylic on panel
Original - SOLD
I found the inspiration for this painting on a piece of the Historic Old Lincoln Highway on the outskirts of Wanship, Utah. The photo gave me the general idea but I had to make many modifications to make it a good painting. The actual shed was metal, not wood and didn't have the opening in front. There was also a lot of uninteresting clutter in front of the shed, the actual fence wasn't very interesting either. There wasn't an actual road in the scene but rather the edge of a gravel parking area that gave me the idea to put a road in.
