Having a pleasant journey is a good omen that positive changes are coming your way. Have you ever journeyed down a rural road in the fall? Imagine having this image to brighten your space and remind you of those memories.

It was a journey for me to paint this image. I liked the perspective challenge of the foreground, the receding road, the foliage getting further away, and the mountains in the distance. It took a lot of planning and many days of layering paint and glaze to get where I wanted with this piece. I like the shadows, the shafts of light and the open sky in the distance. Everything about this piece lifts my mood.
