I've painted nature for so many years. I've tried to deviate but it keeps crawling back. But how do I do this one different than the past. At first I thought I'd go live on a houseboat in Beaufort, North Carolina for a week. Collect all the energy from the activities that are going on in that little town. Paint like a mad dog the entire week and call the show, "HOUSEBOAT". Long and short ..it's not happening.
So, I thought. What do I do in this life I've been given? Where do I spend most of time besides the studio? Hello! On my bike, cycling the countryside. Cycling is ingrained. Painting landscape is ingrained. So, for now, my theme will be sites and sounds of the road. Roadtrip. Maybe that will be the name. Maybe I'm getting somewhere. No pun intended. (or maybe it was intended. You decide.)
First painting. Fairfield. A ride over the New Bern bridge brought me to a beautiful little riverside boating community and marina.
