My delight in both autumn and bright, bold colors got another chance for expression here. A friend commented on my choice of blue for the shadows in this piece, and that's when I started to realize that apparently not everybody sees blue in shadows on the road. It's true that I artfully exaggerate my own perception of this color, but for me it truly is there to begin with. Maybe that's why I so love scenic drives in the late afternoon...well, one of many reasons! I've used a light-to-moderate impasto in this painting. As noted in my profile, I would be glad to paint similar, original reproductions of this or any of my other artworks shown on this site!
