Vacation, en route to California, driving through Oregon. A hot August day.
Driving fast…highway speed…the scenery outside was ribbons of colour: the blue of the sky, the pale gold of the sun-bleached grass cut through by a belt of green, and then the deeper gold of more, and longer, dried grass.
Impossible to snap a picture so, sketchbook on road-shook knees I jotted down a quick image and made some notes. And that’s where this print was born.
