Blue Ridge Parkway 12"x16" #360 oil landscape
This is a notable bend in the road on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was designed to have almost no impact on the environment. They built the road so that it sits on pillars instead of chopping out the side of the mountain. As I was painting it I kept thinking about the mountain roads at home in VT that were so suddenly and unexpectedly washed away during hurricane Irene. The day after I painted it, the local NC paper published a photo of this same spot during fall foliage....too funny.
