Hazy Morning on State Route 65
My husband and I spent every weekday for 6 weeks this summer traveling to Lima - a distance of 25 miles one way - so that he could receive radiation treatments for throat cancer. This is a scene I saw everyday, but one morning, everything was perfect - all I could see was "painting!" I asked him to stop the car and I took several photos. I finished this small painting yesterday - it is 6" x 8" and it is painted in oils. It is hard to believe, but this is exactly how it looked that morning - it looked like the trees were outlined in darker green and so I tried to capture this without giving the impression that I outlined everything. It brings those days back vividly to me.
