|Ohio Roadside. Watercolor.|
10 x 14 ish
Along those lines, a few weeks ago, I chaperoned a group of kids attending the Ohio Model United Nations Conference in Columbus, OH. I was lucky enough to car pool up with a friend as well as fellow chaperone, which allowed me the opportunity to snap a few pics. (When we got home, we rolled directly into a school concert...see what I mean about frantic?)
If you've never been to OH, the highway between Cincinnati and Columbus is....well....flat as a pancake. Lots of corn fields. It says mid-west in a very unapologetic way. It does not say spring, despite the fact that it's well past mid-March. Ohio can be very stubborn while being beautiful.
Above is my interpretation, and below is the photo I riffed from. The painting is limited to four colors, quin burnt orange, quin gold, ultramarine blue, and manganese blue hue. Fabriano 300 lb rough watercolor paper.
Here's to future calmness.
