Study of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road"

I read Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" a few years ago and really enjoyed the book as well as the film that followed. After I made this painting I felt like it had the same feel to it that McCarthy's book did. The painting is about 3ft x 4ft ish. There is a hole in the lower middle of the left side of the painting through it you can see grass, I took the picture outside but that doesn't affect it to much!


  1. nice. I finally read this book, by the way. of course, having seen the movie I knew everything that was going to happen before it did, but nonetheless, it was a great read. it's the first Cormac McCarthy book I've read, but Christine picked up "No Country For Old Men" and "Cities of the Plain," which I look forward to reading. he has a very poetic style of writing, and there were some great lines in that book. I feel this painting is very appropriate to the work.
