I drive by this fence once a week, and  it remains as undisturbed as you see it here.  It's a back road to my destination, and easily missed if you're watching the curvy, hilly road.  But I'm vigilant for subject matter, and my camera is ever present.  In fact, my photo on my blog was taken by ME at a traffic light as I held the camera on the steering wheel.  Ya just never know...  

I painted the background last night. The fence tonight. I wanted the landscape to be dry enough to paint on top of, instead of plowing into it with wet paint. I managed to do most of this with a rigger and a maulstick.

See it, buy it on 

Thanks a bunch!
