On the Road  

  Sierra Nevadas   by Nancy Macgregor

  Acrylic on canvas    22”x44”   $1000.   (right)   


My favorite vacation ever took place in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and Nevada. The rocky peaks in this painting were a challenge to my abilities to apply layers of acrylic.  The richness and variety of color is accomplished by patience in applying many layers. I needed willingness to keep allowing for some areas to be built up, while others areas are showing thin applications from underneath.  

I loved riding on this winding road which took us from a cabin on a peak overlooking Lake Tahoe, to the

the shore 10 miles below.
