JUST DON'T HESITATE TO EXAGGERATE COLOR AND LIGHT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT TELLING LIES. THE MOST TIRESOME PICTURES ARE THE STUPIDLY TRUTHFUL ONES - Wm Merritt Chase

The Slow Lane
I paint a lot of roads - perhaps because I'm a traveller and I like the stories they tell. This oil will be one of ten paintings I'll be exhibiting at Art for the Sangres in Westcliffe, Colorado, September 23, 24th, 2016. The Slow Road is painted on a gessoed hardboard. I buy a 4' x 8' sheet of masonite and using a Stanley knife and a metal ruler, I cut it into the sizes I need. I've tried using various electric saws to make the job easier but they just aren't accurate enough for me. So....back to the Stanley knife.
