The rough/smooth gravel texture, overlaid with footprints, paw prints, and bike tracks, leads the eye gently forward, always forward. Add the cool blue, shifting, soft-edged shadows of cottonwoods, grasses and the occasional signage, and even the ground at my feet is a visual delight on my daily treks along the trail. This is an abstract painting of a real subject, but it also draws on Impressionist tradition of using small strokes and dabs of color to create the effect of light and shadow on the canvas.
