This transparent watercolor is an imagined landscape by the artist. The foreground pathway traditionally, in many classic landscapes, shows “a way into the painting.” Older remnants of fence posts, line part of the path.  This leads to the middle ground where dark shapes suggest several sheep being herded by a shepherd. Toward the background is an old barn from North Carolina that the artist used as reference. The media is Arches watercolor paper 300# paper.
