I love to take photos on road trips - when I'm the passenger that is! We went to Galveston last fall for my husband's family reunion of the Cantini family. Italian family reunion at the racetrack on the mainland - we didn't actually go into Galveston this trip. On the way back I was snapping photos a plenty. This one struck a chord with me and had to paint it. Hope to enlarge soon!

This painting works on so many levels - I love the play of the warm grasses and the cool sky - just perfect!

When I opened this I was struck by the strength of it. Strong composition and color harmony. A winner!

Thanks, ladies!! Appreciate it. I have been color correcting the photoshop file. Looks good. But when I attach to blogger, the darks are darker and the color weaker. Anyone else notice this on blogger?
