"The I-5"

This 14"h by 11"w oil portrays a view that catches my eye as the dogs and I cross over the I-5 from our home on our evening walks. I love the way the sun set casts a "glow" onto the curve of the interstate as it disappears to the south! This would have been a particularly difficult place to paint "en plein air" (in the open air) since it's quite noisy and space is limited, (not to mention those cars that just keep constantly changing their positions!) So, I opted to take a few shots with my new "point and shoot" camera and worked from them in my studio!
