Hwy Distractions, 12x9


"Hwy Distractions" 12x9" Pastel on sanded paper Sold

On my long journey across California to Montana this past summer, there were many interesting scenes that intrigued me in some way. There is something about the rural areas that have small hints of beauty. As plain and mundane as this little town was, (and I mean mundane because I don't even remember what it's name was), it had some interesting old signage and buildings that seem lost in time. As we travelled, I took many snapshots. This is one of those shots that had a pretty good composition. I beefed up the color in this one and gave it a sexy sky. Still no name for this small Idaho town, but it was one of our many gas-stops along the way. If you recognize the location...pipe up! I'd love to know.

Hi Celeste,

I must have forgot to post that tidbit. It's 12 x 9" on sanded paper. Info just posted beneath. I've got a few other interesting urban street scenes I'm gonna work on before I begin the task of the LO Invitational piece. I'm looking forward to the new stuff.
