Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Acrylic on canvas, about 18"X36", and part of my two-man show this Feb. at the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento. Funny the little things that tell you a painting is done...it was the wee bit of foreground shadow cutting across the road that said to me, "David, put down the damn brush, and have a glass of vino." And I did.

This so looks like the I & M Canal path that runs near my home. It is truly stunning and I love that early morning bit of mistiness that is still hovering in the air. Beautiful piece, David.

I hope you enjoyed the wine as you deserved to relax after producing this great painting.

I really like that one. Wow! First it seems that the yellow in the back is just to show the end of the way to nowhere. However, if we think twice we all know that we've got yellow in the sunny air O:-)

I need to take my rusty cycle out and head to infinity :)

Maybe it is the canal path! I often work from reference photos that I find online.

I don't know about the light at the end of the tunnel, but there sure is light at the end of this path.

I did indeed enjoy the red stuff, Sue.

Ulrika, Yes, it is a very warm, morning mist. It wasn't that way in the reference photo, but reference photos are not meant to be copiied.

Prabha, rusty bikes are perfect for infinity treking!
