Traveled Road - Art

Traveled Road is a brightly lit aerial view of the landscape below. A curved yellow road is featured in this painting, and blocks of color line the road on both sides. These color swatches have meaning and reflect different elements of the landscape. The sky is painted a deep, surreal blue. The colored blocks and circles represent the man-made elements of the landscape—buildings, cars, billboards, and other artificial objects.

The natural elements of the landscape are represented in the brown swath that runs alongside the yellow road. Brown is a natural color, a color that brings an impression of life and nurturing warmth. The brown swath of color is small in comparison to the unnatural elements of the landscape, a reflection of the impact that man has had on his environment. Traveled Road is a colorful piece with significant, bright colors placed into an interesting juxtaposition.
