This painting has taken many turns in its creation. I struggled getting it to the place where I was satisfied. In the final 10 minutes, I scraped downmy failed attempts and thought very carefully about my approach, each move had a specific purpose. In those last moments I found the purest form of what i was trying to say all along.
This was a rather remote spot under the bridge at Iron Horse Trail. My painting buddy Ernie was down the road a bit. I was trying to keep one eye open for snakes, mountain lions, or whatever other wildlife might surprise me. There were only little lizards scampering around.
