Old Rag, Skyline Drive


There are a few places I keep going back to paint, and Old Rag is one of them! This spot is on Skyline Drive called Thorofare Mtn Overlook, the best place to paint Old Rag! Each time I go, I do get a different painting because of the time of year and time of day. 
24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed
Below you see the beginning of the paint and the home it went to . . . thank you, Becky & Brody!
