"Tecumseh Road" landscape oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Tecumseh Road" 18x18 oil on canvas  Sold

I went to visit my friends at Sacred Road Ministries back in March. They are working on refurbishing a large house into a new church on the Yakima Indian Reservation.There is a lot of work to get the site up to code for a commercial building. I stayed for three days and helped out my friend Roger and a team from Covenant College. We were able to accomplish quite a bit. In this painting you can just see the church building way at the end of the road. It's a mile off the paved road and pretty muddy after a hard rain!
  Using a limited palette I painted this from a photo taken while driving to the work site.

Robin, Your painting is beautiful! The muddy track must of been quite thrilling in the rain. The mist and fog is so evocative of my childhood. I spent a lot of time walking down muddy roads.

This painting knocks it right out of the ballpark! I hope you were as thrilled with it as we are.

I was mysteriously drawn to your blog by an accidental click of the mouse while on Cathleen Rehfelds blog. I'm glad that happened because I'm enjoying your work. This is definitely a "home run" in my book as well.
