This series was inspired by a hidden road in the Blue Ridge mountains called “Thunderstruck”. On a wandering drive the road was discovered and followed. At times the it is reduced to little more than a dirt path but it is encompassed by an unspoiled beauty that is rare even in the hills of Virginia. At one point there was a narrow curve beyond which a beautiful river basin, bounded by an ancient stone cliff on one side, was revealed. A perfect place to paint!
It is hoped that these are the first of many works inspired by this mystical place.
