Rural Virginia 4
Do you love the open road? When you want to get away, do you drive in your car, like Peter Gabriel sings In Your Eyes?
For me, the answer is yes to these questions and many more that delve into the subject of self discovery and the road trip. For I love the American landscape, the openness, the scenes that fly by when driving fast on an interstate, and the fleeting images that also fill my mind when I look back on an era and thinki about the places visited then.
And these ideas are the inspiration behind this new series of landscape paintings, On the Road.
Over the next year, I hope to paint many views of the American landscape, some from photos I have taken, and most from photos given to me by others. Currently, I am looking for photo submissions, so please send me some from one of your favorite road trips and let’s see where this painted journey will take us.
