This painting is inspired by hours of bike riding through a historic milestone in Maryland: the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal and towpath along the Potomac River. The towpath was used by mules who pulled boats along the man-made canal, carrying goods between Washington DC and the Ohio River in western Pennsylvania.
Currently only outdoor enthusiasts and bike riders use the towpath. I have fond memories riding my bicycles on the path for hours as I chaperoned my son’s Boy Scouts troops for overnight trips. The energetic boys would ride ahead leaving me to enjoy the quite scenery, wildlife and the murky water.
In the process of painting this landscape, the composition became ambiguous: it was both a cave and a wooded canopy. I liked this direction as it pulls the viewer into the unknown and lets the imagination fill-in the blanks.
