"Beauty in the Mundane" Railroad Crossing Daily Paintings Heidi Malott

"Taking the Backroads"
6x6" oil on gesso board

Driving home from a wedding reception, we chose to take the backroads.  I had my camera out and was snapping away as usual.  It was a hot, muggy day.  The skies looked heavy like they could open up and rain any minute.  For some reason this "spoke" to me.  I am happier with this one in person than I am of this digital image but I think this comes close.  Anyway, the lighting, the lines, the greens, the Queen Anne's Lace growing along this intersection grabbed my attention.  Let me know what ya think.  I love to hear if something strikes you when you least expect it.
