Whenever I'm traveling thru the Western states, where often it can be a L --O--N--G way between exits, I'm always halfway expecting to see this sign.....:)

You are so right Barn. my fear is worse when Hubby wants to push on after 10 hours of driving. This USA sure has beautiful places though.

Very well painted, I don't see how you could draw the lines so straight. I use rulers, still crooked they are.

Nice colors too.:)

Cute painting! You are so right...it seems some states don't even have a gas station...just straight road through nothing. A long time since I made a cross country trip.

About half way between El Paso, Texas and Alamogordo, NM stands the Otero County Jail. It is all desert between the two cities. Most of the distance is a two lane highway like yours. The jail is surrounded by a very high cyclone fence topped with razor wire. A sign on the side of the road reads, "Otero County Jail. DO NOT pick up hitch hikers."

I know exactly what this is like! So funny as a painting - and well done!
(Mike - I lived in Alamogordo, then Ruidoso when I was a kid. That drive between El Paso & Alamogordo seems like it goes on Forever!)

I don't have the worry of running out of petrol as I don't drive but I certainly wouldn't want to peddle my bike that far:D
great perspective:):)

barnburner,
Excellent depiction of a wide open expanse and a road that seems to
go on forever. The driver would certainly be checking his gas gauge
and if it's a woman, she may be hoping for a rest stop to appear soon
in the horizon. A "powder room" availability is always foremost on her
mind when the trip is a long one. A great first person rendering. I feel
as if I am behind the wheel. :)

Jasmine - Thank you. The secret of my straight line?
Same as yours - RULERS!!:D:D The phrase "I can't draw a straight line", was invented for me... :):)

Pat - Many thanks.... I'm keeping an eye out for a stray horse to borrow when I run out... :)

Sandy - Thank you so much. Glad you enjoyed it. :)

Linn - Not only is there a scarcity of gas stations, in the small towns (when you find one), they are usually locked up by 5p.m. More than one person has found themselves on empty and forced to pull up to the pumps and spend the night in the car waiting for them to open. LOL... Thank you very much. :)

Mike - Sadly, that's good advice for any location today. I can remember when it was common courtesy to pick up hitchhikers. Thanks. :)

Skylar - Thank you. Very much appreciated. :)

Amanda - Thank you so much. Hope all your bicycle trips are downhill... :)

Mairze - Dotes - Indeed, there are other factors to be considered than just fuel... :) After I posted this, I thought about that, and realized I probably should have made the sign read "Next Services"...:)
Thank you very much!

Like it and your sense of humor--although it is too close to the real thing when you´re somewhere west of Amarillo on the old Rt. 66. :cool:

Hi Barnburner.

I would like to ask you something if you don't mind. Which digital program did you use to make this work?

Is that i was wondering if it was done with ArtRage itself.

(my question is for i am interested in buying this product)

Thank you

I used ArtRage 2.5 for everything except the lettering on the sign.
That I put on with Photofiltre.

Fantastic!.... is that I found the road too well done like it was made with some vector drawing tool from another software.

So one question if you don´t mind, is this ArtRage capable of handling vector drawing tools as the paint tools as well?

Thank you for your answer. I am much impressed with everything that I have seeing here at your forum.

Congratulations

There are many here that are more versed in the capabilities of Art Rage than I, but as far as I know,
it doesn't have capability for Vector drawing tools.
I appreciate your comment about the road.
I just used rulers to make the lines right, and layered one color on the base, and textured another on top of it, to give it that "used highway look".:)

Barney you painted the situation my hubby enjoyes tremendously... he loves troubles on the road... he is looking for them... i hate them... so your straight highway looks good enough for a small plain to take off it... so off i am flying out of this situation... :)

Beautiful painting,barney, breathing out hot summer breeze...oh.. it is almost gone ...so soooooon...:(

I'm in your corner AT... I've had enough troubles on the road without tempting fate...... I have no desire to have more. I'm one of those people that when my gas gauge says half tank - I'm headed for a gas station.
Thanks for the kind comments AT... Very much appreciated! :)
