A Road to Somewhere

I can’t say why, but this watercolor I did a while back for a class is one of my favorites of all the good, passable, bad, and downright ugly paintings I have done over the last several months. It’s a keeper. To me, it has a certain mystery about it. Does the road take us to a pleasant place, perhaps a farmhouse where we can sit on the porch and drink sweet iced tea while watching the sun go down; or instead (how my mind tends to wander), leads to a run-down shed that has a meat hook hanging from the ceiling, saws and knives laid out on an old wooden bench, and puddles of dark stains on the dirt floor? I suppose, like most things in life, perception is all in the mind of the beholder.

KT Workman grew up in the rural South without the benefit of cell phones or the Internet, a time and place that has heavily influenced her writing. To this day, when she puts pen to paper—or fingers to keyboard—nine times out of ten her mind veers south onto that old, familiar road. It goes home. KT resides in Arkansas where she writes a wide variety of gothic and speculative fiction, poetry, and dabbles in watercolor painting and amateur photography.

  1. I really like this one. It reminds me of the me that used to be. The one who drove from Wisconsin to Montana, committing gluttony of the eye all the way there and back. Those are really good memories.

  2. I feel it’s that part in a long journey where you “stop and smell the roses” so to speak, and pause to reflect what a beautiful world it truly is. I absolutely love your watercolor! What an artist!
