Evening Ride--American Landscape Oil Painting

Last weekend I took a road trip to the Pacific Coast. It was lovely to see the autumn colors beginning to take over the landscape. I left in the evening and was able to watch the sun set and broadcast a golden glow on the foliage as I passed. This 8x10 inch oil painting was inspired by this experience. When the paint dries, I will place this painting in my Etsy Gallery.

I really like the light here. I think I've been on the same road trip sometime, at that same time of day!

Beautiful paintings. They make me want to travel. They remind me of when I was a child and we used to take long drives on Sunday afternoons.
