It's beautiful and my favourite road too. It's the road to my sweetheart :-) We may get a lot of rain here in Wales but we are lucky to live in a place with breathtaking views around many corners.

Gidday Mate!... "The Way" is striking beautiful! Full of stunning colour... and "possibility" over each hill... and around every bend.

When one finds "the way"... Life is full of promise and energy.That's simply the way it is when the road leads "You" to your sweetheart!

Looks good on ya Mate!

Good Painting!... and Happy Trails to you both!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

Great depth and beautiful edge work drawing attention to the road and the direction leading us to that wonderful mountain range and glorious sky.
