"LONGWAYS TO GO"

With the sun dipping down, shadows crossing the road and music fading into static, I had much time to get inside my mind and ask "what shall I paint?"   It's always an interesting question to ask oneself while an endless procession of colors & shapes go gently floating by in my head.   As I stare at the road an idea begins it's journey forward and then...  "THERE, I'll paint you"!  With more thoughts streaming of what color will go here or there a painting began if only in my minds eye.   I was glad I still had a longways to go on this road as I wanted to finish the painting.   This is an 8x6 inch original oil painting on Birch wood that is mounted to a finished wooden box: (Sold)
