2003 Oil on Astroturf 22 x 36 inches Gift of the artist
An oil painting primarily in shades of blue on Astroturf. The painting depicts a one-point perspective landscape of cars driving into the distance along a two-lane road. There are two cars on the road, both with red tail lights that contrast against the otherwise blue composition. Tall streetlamps line the road on either side, glowing overhead with light yellow lights. On the far right is a shorter row of telephone poles. The cars drive towards the horizon below the sky which fades from dark to light blue as it meets the horizon. The foreground is dark blue fading to light blue with hints of yellow as it meets the horizon, creating the illusion of distance through atmospheric perspective.
