...just left alone for a while...
2 of my favorite subjects - Country Roads and old trucks. This piece started simple enough, then the Gods took over. I traced the truck, but the rest is just freehand insanity. As I was finishing, this shaft of light business happened- giving it a cliched quality. But I decided to go with it (Ergo the Gods). The title was also "Abandoned", but with a spiritual overtone now, I had to change it.
5 layers. Oils. Orig working size appx 12x16" at 200 ppi.

It's got a great feel to it. The light coming through the trees and the way you have painted it makes it different than if it was just a straight image.

Very nice Skylar, you have created a great atmosphere with this one.

It's pretty evident some sort of heavenly inspiration in the almost supernatural lights pervading this mysterious and charming painting.

What wonderful lighting you have in this brilliant painting Skylar, well done on another great painting:)

It's a beautiful painting Skylar and I like both those things as well. It could also be a close encounter of the third kind. :) Anyway, it makes for a beautiful painting.

Because I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, this is not an uncommon site. You have captured the subject so well, and given me a whole new appreciation of what is beautiful on the back roads.

The sunbeams make it look like many watercolors I've seen and lend it a great look! Great dramatic color usage!

I like the style of this painting. It gives a good impression of the scene without trying to be a photograph, which is what draws me into it more... ;)
