Oil on Canvas

$2200, framed

I had imagined this painting for several months, but I didn't paint it until I could manage to get it to fit an assignment. It was painted in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition and the resulting rush to the Oregon Territory. Instead of covered wagons, I have painted Hummers and Expeditions. Instead of a forest of Douglas firs, I have a forest of cell phone towers. Instead of ruts in the road from wagon wheels, I have ruts from studded snow-tires.

This scene does not exist, but is a composite of images.
