Road to Town painting by Andrew Daniel

"Road to Town" by Andrew Daniel
 oil on wood panel 6" x 10" (15cm x 25cm)

I've been really enjoying including the various man made objects in the landscape lately. They provide interesting focal points and compositional opportunities. At first I had thought of them as too modern and ugly, but now I see them as the way we as humans relate to the landscape, they deepen the story. This is the road I walk along when I am heading bach toward downtown Arcata, California after spending a couple hours watching the birds at the sanctuary. My favorite pond is on the right, known as Gearheart Marsh. I've painted it several times.

    What a beautiful painting. So many beautiful relationships within it
