Saturday Night at the Feed & Seed

I've been learning to play the fiddle and have been thinking about this painting for a long time. The Feed & Seed is a Bluegrass venue down the road from us that doubles at a Baptist Church on Sundays. You can't get a more authentic NC mountain experience than this.

View from The Backseat

I started this painting after a drive to Bat Cave. (Yes there is a town near here call "Bat Cave.") It was fall, hilly and near the Blue Ridge Parkway--sort of. So this is a painting about that drive. A day trip.

I had to really commit to this "Opposing Forces" design strategy to make this painting work. Take a look at my book, Master Disaster, or, better still, hire me to teach a workshop for your group and learn how powerful these strategies are. Of course, I'm using a Contrast of Temperature, Warm v. Cool Color Strategy. (36 x 36, acrylic)
