My Road Series has been super popular and I am so grateful it has sold so well! I am pushing myself and taking it in a new direction! I had so much positive feedback on my bright Sunset Series, I decided to abstract my road landscapes with color in more of a fauvist manner. This was the first go and I struggled with it quite a bit. I have always loved Wolf Kahn, I must have five or six calendars of his work that I have saved over the years. His paintings/colors are amazing! His technique finds more of a color vibration, I tried to use more of a color blocking technique. I finally got this one to a place I can live with. Incorporating the smear with the hashmarks gives a nice contrast to the mountains and differentiates one from the other, even though they are the same basic value.
