Paintings around the Triangle
I do not need to travel far to find some outstanding subjects. One generally does not think of Interstate 540 as a picturesque area of beauty, however several of my favorites paintings have materialized from places in and around Wake County. Milburnie Fishing Club (pictured) was inspired by a real place just off highway 64 in Knightdale. I was lucky enough to capture this area at sunset, while the mauve / red sky definitely has some artistic license, the area is quite interesting with hundred of sunken trees. I’ve never fished there, but I’m sure the bass are plentiful.
