Now there's a peaceful looking path to walk.

Hi, Lana: That's the road I've been wandering around on. And it has made all the difference.

Just lovely. As Travis said, "peaceful." D

Magical!

Lana Awesome! I need to walk down your path, the one less taken (I love Frost)! It makes me teary for spring and to hear the wind through the leaves again. Great job.

Charles Gramlich said...

Something very interesting here. It is peaceful, but there's something else, some energy behind the scenes.

Interesting Blue Road...

David Cranmer said...

The colors are a striking contrast... the brightness at the end of the road with the darkness along the sides. Very nice piece.

timethief said...

A luscious painting but why is the path blue? she wondered.

Doson said...

The first thing I remembered: "The road less travelled" - Robert Frost.

Beautiful bluish path.
It signifies a sign of Peace & Innocence.

Lovely, as usual, Lana. Blue and green are my favorite colors and as in photographs, I love the dark trees against bold colors. Hey, have you been in my head!? Very soothing... :o)

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks for the kind comments, all!

The path is blue because blue-gray gravel in the shade will lean toward blue shades & I was working with a limited palette of only 3 colors (+ black & white.)

I love the blue, it's electric. Charles is right, there's a crackling energy.

Steve Malley said...

Makes me think of Avon Lea, Lousyana-style!

Miladysa said...

You're on a roll!

Magical :D

Shauna Roberts said...

Beautiful painting, Lana. To me, it's the writing life. You're heading toward a golden goal, but you can't see the full path to get there, and there are dark passages along the way.

Lana Gramlich said...

Erik & Miladysa; Thank you. :)

Steve; This was inspired from a photo of "my" woods in Canada, actually. *L* ;)

Shauna; Good point & thanks!

jodi said...

May all of us that choose the road less traveled find it as beautiful as yours.

Mark said...

An amazing piece, I love how you draw someone into the scene with the lighter colors.

Michelle (artscapes) said...

You have done a beautiful job with the light!!

Lana Gramlich said...

jodi; Aw...that's terribly sweet of you! :)

Mark; I can't take credit...I have to pass it on to Mother Nature. Thanks for your appreciation, however! :)

Michelle; Thanks. I've often struggled with light. I vowed not to stress myself about it here & I think it paid off. :)

Larry said...

I like it because I know I've been there many times in places like Maine.

Lana Gramlich said...

Larry; Thanks. It's based on a photo of my favorite hiking spot in Canada. :)

Rick said...

These are so peaceful that after looking at them, I actually waved at a local gang member. He promptly gave me the finger, but it's the thought that counts!

But I do agree with Shauna- the "Road Less Traveled" does remind me of the writing life. Only I'm wondering if you should have added a few bumps.

Larry said...

Ilile the first one. That is definitely a road I'd like to be walking along with my binoculars.-very inviting.
