"Clouds, Highway 5"

8x10" oil on canvas panel

I noticed something strange while traveling this stretch of highway 5 back in the early eighties. I was returning to college in a 67' VW bug with no radio. It was a ten hour trip. ANYWAY, I loved this drive. Miles and miles of open space. Nothing but rolling hills covered with dried grass.... and yellow umbrellas. Someone had randomly raised huge yellow umbrellas among the hills. It went on for miles. I later found out that it was Christo. It was very beautiful and I feel lucky to have accidentally experienced it.
