Along the Prairie Road

Today's painting is not only another landscape, but one on the theme of travelling down a road. This painting was inspired by the vastness of prairies. In a sense looking across a prairie is like looking at the ocean. They seem to have no end even though we know logically that they are just wrapping around the curve of the earth. This painting is 8x10 inches on a gessoed hardboard panel.

Saundra--Thanks so much! I know much of the country is under a heavy blanket of snow right now, but we're dreaming of summer!
