Scenic Route


Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6"

This is a road I drive on everyday on my way to and from work. It's a slow speed limit with plenty of scenery. I love this route. It's one of 2 paintings that is hanging in the Randy Higbee Gallery 6" Squared show which opens tonight. If you are interested in purchasing, you may contact the gallery direct. If you are in the Costa Mesa, CA area (unfortunately i am not) stop by and check out the almost 500 paintings juried in the show.

You always do a great job at making something that has little appeal in real life - telephone poles - look really interesting.

If I lived in the area, I'd definitely check out that show - I bet it will be fantastic!

I do not know how you paint so small and still make such an impact. Kudos!

The atmosphere in this painting is just right, MIchael. I can just feel the cold! Good luck... hope it get a "red" dot!

Michael, Today we stopped by the Randy Higbee gallery. It's short drive from our house.

After a few years of following your blog, it was great fun seeing two of your paintings in person.

Of the several hundred paintings that were accepted, I was told about 800 were rejected. To be included in this show is very special, indeed. Congratulations.
