HIGHWAY 93, FRONT STREET MAGIC

Commonly referred to as Front Street, this byway is actually U.S. Highway 93. Highway 93 begins in southern Arizona and extends from there all the way to Canada. Along the route the highway passes through the small city of Caliente, Nevada. Within the city a string of 32 houses was built along the highway. I've included these three in the painting. (15" x 22") No longer in my collection.

I love the cool colors in this one and that soft sky!

Like the way you used only a subtle use of the complementary yellow. You are as good at painting buildings as you are at painting your lovely landscapes.

This painting sets such a mood - it is so successful. I love the simplicity of the buildings and the wetness of the road and the sky is wonderful.
