Oil on hardboard
8" x 10"
Rural mailboxes in a valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I had a lot of fun and struggle with this one - I started it over entirely once, and several times scraped the paint off and repainted an area. Trying to loosen up, as always, and use a bolder brushstroke than usual. The white newspaper boxes are my favorite part, and the foreground around them - I managed a sort of Gauguin thing I really like.
