the road leaving home

painting
one of a kind
media: canvas (cotton), oil

$5,000 - h: 48" x w: 60" - original

1.5" gallery wrapped canvas, ready to hang.

In this large scale original oil painting my subject matter is the road leaving away from home, my fatherís Ranch in the lower eastern corner of Wyoming. The road winds down the hill upon where my house sits, a bridge crosses over Crow Creek which flows through flows the entire area. The sky dominates the image, the lower one third of the painting is indicative of the Wyoming scrub brush that dominates this part of Wyoming. When Iím out walking, I am always in awe of our skies. Therefore, I strive for bold colored shapes in blues, cerulean, whites, grey and black, juxtaposed, creating tension and eliciting emotions one can feel while watching the ever changing skies. In the foreground I wanted to convey the wind swept, dry arid land that becomes loved and sacred by those who live here.
