The Road East

The Road East. ©2011 Lisa McShane. Oil on Linen. 24" x 24".

Mid-August our youngest son left for college in Wisconsin and my husband drove him there so that he could take his bike and his guitar and amps. My husband is a geologist and he maintains a fascinating blog called Reading the Washington Landscape. (Note to artists: you don't want to know how many visitors a geology blog receives relative to one of ours.) Along the way he sent me a photo of the road, the hills and a cloud.  That inspired this painting.

So this is the road heading east, to where my children live.

Lovely atmospheric painting (heh, those geologists are like rock stars, lol)!
