Note from the artist - I have always been fascinated by paintings that take you on a journey. This beautiful masterpiece does just that. The quaint, wobbly fence as it feebly protects the path between the two black-willow trees. The path that disappears in the distance and the warmth of the color palette I chose. All of these aspects came together just right to bring a homely and safe feeling to this painting. The mystery of what could be just over the rise, and whether it is in some lords English manor, or just outside a farmhouse in the Midwest. It doesn't really matter because it feels like home.
