Driving by Dirt
MIX AND MATCH LANDSCAPES
These tiny landscapes (12 x 12") were inspired by that hypnotic experience of long drives through the countryside of my childhood home. Do you remember sitting in the back seat with your forehead pressed to the window as the world blurred by? Do you remember how the hot, dusty farmland could look almost pretty at dusk? You could smell the hint of manure in the air. When I painted these works, I could almost hear the sound of the car engine hum.
For me, these paintings are like many views out of the same car window. That is why I think they work so well together in groupings.
