Looking North: December Morning

acrylic on canvas, 48” x 24”

Highway 20 runs east along a ridge just outside of Canton, offering glimpses of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Blue Ridge makes up the southernmost section of the Appalachians, one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. Once as craggy as the Himalayas, the Appalachians have been worn to gentle nubs by a half billion years of rain and wind.

Southern winters can be mild. By the time I saw this view, the morning sun had burned away the frost in on the fields. It lingered only in the blue- shadowed hollows. The chimney smoke alone betrays the temperature.
Travels on Highway 20 – a backcountry road with a surprising history.
