191. Back Roads to Battle Ground

'Back Roads to Battle Ground'
6" x 6"
oil on gessoboard

Oh, late afternoon autumn sun. 
You're so gorgeous and warm and terribly dangerous to drive in. :)

Whenever we head out of our small town, my boys discuss the upcoming trip for time, distance, landmarks, etc, and they always refer to any wooded area, in any region of the country, as 'The Forest'. As in, "First we go through 'The Forest', and then we cross the bridge..." 
It makes me smile. 

This scene from 'The Forest' was just the other day, driving away from my sister's house in the Washington hills. So pretty.

Love the atmospheric perspective! I want to be on that road. Your painting invites the viewer to "come on in!"
