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.
