Tunnel Vision

Oil/linen panel
Plein air

My first plein air in a long time, but damn it felt good! Trying to shake off the rust. A grey day for sure. The top is interstate 5 heading north to Los Angeles with a frontage road running underneath it. I pass through this tunnel a lot and finally got around to painting it. This location is at Laurel and India. Would like to paint the other side of it sometime. I'm heading to Colorado for Thanksgiving and I'll be taking my paint gear. The last time I was there I saw my hometown with artists eyes. It's unbelievable how much there is to paint, things like old silos, abandoned gas stations, run down shops and dead cornfields with the Rocky Mountians in the background. Should be a fun time!
