A landscape featuring pine trees and dry grasses on a rural road in Virginia.

Catoctin View Lane. 10x8 oil on linen panel. 2014.

This is a roadside scene just around the corner from our house, along the back road into our neighborhood.  I pass it all the time and thought the look of the dark mass against the light mass would make an interesting sketch. I saved the thickest paint application for the foreground.
