Road to Abilene small mixed media landscape painting by Polly Jones

Here is my version of what I saw while driving one late afternoon on the road from Abilene to Brownwood. Mesquite trees against clouds...I wanted to capture the grey with all of the more subtle bits of color going on. I went a little crazy with the thick paint and using my squeegee tool.  It has graph paper and a bit of map as a part of the layering with text from vintage books and paint. This didn't really capture what I saw so I'll have to have another go. The challenge and possibility of getting it next time is why I keep painting.
