I love a road trip

I Love a Road Trip No. 1

Welcome to Colorado  © 2012 Karen Mathison Schmidt, artist
5 x 7 inches • oil on archival, museum quality GessobordTM

SOLD • private collection • Shreveport, Louisiana

Here’s the first of approximately 1,000 paintings in my new series, “I Love a Road Trip.”

There won’t really be 1,000 paintings in the series, I just wanted to see if you were paying attention. 

As I mentioned in a previous post, I actually did take over a thousand photos on our road trip to Leadville, Colorado a couple of weeks ago – it’s been fun browsing through them and choosing ones to paint ... I’m looking forward to doing more of these.

But don’t worry, all you cat, dog, and garden and Louisiana landscape fans ... I’ll still be sprinkling your favorites in between all these road trip paintings!
