Winter Lane from Blue Ridge Series by Bernie Rosage Jr.

"Blue Ridge Lane in the Winter"... Blue Ridge Plein Air #3, Todd, NC
5x7" Oil on Panel, en plein aire, 11-20-2007.
This original oil painting is available for purchase at eBay via auction... click here...

I was attracted to the light in this simple scene and how the bare winter trees seemed to glow on the shadow side of the hill. This small piece was captured near the banks of the New River, near Todd, North Carolina, as the afternoon sun was in its golden splendor. I overemphasized the small road that was there... something about country lanes and roads... I find them so inviting and peaceful. Anyone who has collected my work recognizes them as a common theme.

Very good, I love the barn from yesterday too. You are making me want to take a trip to the mountains.
