on this road

"on this road there are no godspoke men. they are gone and i am left and they have taken with them the world."

- cormac mccarthy, the road

(one of my favorite books-once you read it you will not be able to forget it)


  1. A beautiful piece, Beth. I've made note of the book and will give it a look-see! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I read the book ; saw the movie- this is a haunting piece with a hint of life beyond the horizon. Wonderful work!

  3. Everytime I visit you I'm mesmerized by your artwork. This one is so sad and hopeless but so beautiful!

  4. The darkness of the piece is so complemented by the warm of the horizon and what might lay beyond. Awesome work, Beth.

  5. What they said...You continue to blow me away!

  6. The sense of desolation beautifully illustrates the book. The hopeful horizon is a perfect complement.xx

  7. Oh Beth, again an awesome and powerful artwork!
    Warm waits for us behind the horizon... Hopefully.

  8. I don't know if you've ever seen a popular commercial photo of a small girl in bare feet walking away from the viewer, along a path through some woods, wearing a straw hat and a dress, carrying a small suitcase and a teddy bear? Your picture is the bittersweet antithesis to that saccharine one. Or maybe it portrays the future of that innocent child.
    I've been hesitating about reading The Road. Will reconsider...

    1. i have not seen the commercial...sounds lovely though. "bittersweet antithesis to that saccharine one".... love that... are you a writer in your spare time?!
      the road is disturbing, i won't lie, but hauntingly beautiful at same time. the movie is art in motion. that's just me... huge cormac mccarthy fan (likes disturbing folks as much as i do)

  9. Wow, this is wonderful! Such a gorgeous sky.
