Another Backroad


Not sure what county I was in, I believe Bedford County, but I got this Friday before I picked up my "daughters" at Webb in an intermittent rain.
If anybody is interested, go to Trailside Galleries website and look up Bill Anton and then check out a painting he has on the site named Alaskan Fjord. Geeez what a painting. And I am looking at a 4x5 image on a computer terminal. I can't imagine what the original looks like.
I am constantly scanning the information superhighway for artists and paintings that I can glean a bit of information from that will help me in my artistic quest and every now and then I will come across a painting that will make me let out an audilble gasp or an "O myGod!" This one did it for me. I am afraid though if I could actually buy it and did I would wind up like Howard Hughes, just sitting in a chair and staring at my painting for months at a time until I died. If I had 15,000 dollars I would sure like to find out.

But wow, your painting is also awesome very loose and the colors
are sooo exact right.

very nice painting! I guess you could have fudged and made those distant hills huge, and put a little stream running down them. Then it would be a bit more like the Alaska painting. : )

Thanks to Rene for linking to it!

Thanks for the comment. It absolutely blows me away to think someone in the Netherlands can check out my artwork the same day I finish it.Thanks for checking me out.

Doug,
If you think a little stream on my painting is going to make it look anything at all like a Bill Anton painting you need to talk to your pharmacist about re-adjusting your dosages.
