Oil on Board
This past weekend I took a day to drive around and find some inspiration for paintings. The colors here in the winter tend to go towards greys, golds and lots of neutrals so I wasn't really sure if I'd find anything I wanted to work with. What I did find was alot of beauty in the starkness of the landscape and the muted colors and a challenge to work with what is rather than what I think it ought to be. This little painting is just what the title says, a road coming out of (or going to) Lone Pine. However, I really never did find anything that looked like a town! Lots of ranches, though. The light area at the top edge of the road is smoke from burning that was being done.
