The Grassy Road Seems Like Heaven


"The Grassy Roads" , oil , 12 x 12"  copyright 2018
There is a carriage road at Acadia National Park that is not like the other carriage roads that meander through the park. This road is not made of crushed rock that the horses clip clop along ......but this road is covered with green grass and runs through forest and granite embankments dressed in wild flowers and blueberry bushes. The horses quietly trot through this road, so peacefully with the only noise the clink of chains on the carriage, if there are chains, ......and the singing of the birds in the trees. It seems magical. And what could be more magical than to be riding behind a team of white horses. Thus.... "The Grassy Road" came into being.
This painting is framed in a black floater frame.
