"Oban 155" - 5" x 7" - oil
SoldFairly often I search through old road trip photos looking for inspiration. I have several great photos but I don't always tackle them on as paintings, usually because the photo is so good that I don't want to taint the memory of the trip with a painting that isn't as strong as the photo. When this happens I tuck them away until I can get the nerve to dive in. This is one of those pieces. This is a trail that we walked in Oban, Scotland after coming from a horse show two years ago.
Currently I have two pieces that are awaiting my attention. They may have to wait a bit longer because of prior commitments. It all comes down to putting that first "glob" of paint down. It really sets the tone for the rest of the painting.
