Painting a Country Road

Painting roads is always an interesting challenge.  They have a color and texture that depends so much on what kind of road it is.  Concrete, paved, gravelly, dirt, overgrown, in sun, in shadow, or both--there are so many variables that contribute to the skills test of painting.  Nothing like a road to give a painter a challenge and cause one to ponder the metaphoric nature of the road.  Although this painting has SOLD, there are others for sale in my Etsy Shop Gallery, Small Impressions Paintings
