Road to Anywhere

This was done for the DPW Challenge, this week it is German Landscapes. Two photos were posted and we were told to paint them. That's it, paint them. Edit them, change them - do as we wished. 

I chose to only do this one of the two images - I was captivated by all the greens. And I can never walk away from a road - I love roads & paths, both in life and in photographs & paintings. I have been known to pull over while I'm driving, just so I can grab my camera & take a photo of a road. I have also been known to make a turn while I'm driving, because I have to drive down that seasonal road. I just have to know where it goes. All roads make me wonder where do they go, what do they lead to. It's always been a fascination for me, even as a child on my bicycle. I just had to travel the dirt road. 

This scene could be anywhere really, not just in Germany - hence the name of this piece. This piece is up for sale, and you can find it on my "Art Is Not a Thing - 4 Sale" blog. The DPW Challenge site will also direct you to the 4 Sale blog. It is being sold without a matt or frame.

So gorgeous! I love your greens, Nancie! I'm rather like you with the roads. I don't often take photos, but I am often veering off just to see where an interesting looking road leads.

I always admire your work. I think you really improved on the photograph. The contrast between the dark trees in the background and the bright spring greens in the foreground is really lovely.
