JUST DON'T HESITATE TO EXAGGERATE COLOR AND LIGHT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT TELLING LIES. THE MOST TIRESOME PICTURES ARE THE STUPIDLY TRUTHFUL ONES - Wm Merritt Chase

In case you haven't noticed, I like repeating an idea by doing a series, such as my little 4" x 4" series, Color and Light. I've also got a thing for painting roads; maybe it is because I'm moving back to New Zealand. The titles of my road paintings seem to reflect that, Journey Home, One Mile to Go, etc. and this little guy is titled Nearly Home. It's just a little piece, 6" x 6" oil on gessoed board. This is one of the 36 originals I'll be exhibiting at The Southeastern Wildlife Expo next weekend! I'm really looking forward to seeing all 36 of my paintings hanging together, hobnobbing with my fellow artists and eating ribs at Sticky Fingers!
