View from Kings Gap, oil, 8x10

I just finished this little painting of a portion of the vast landscape view from the top of Kings Gap. It reminds me of something my grandmother once said. She was a country farming girl from the South, and my father drove her from North Carolina up through Maryland to visit us in Pennsylvania. She made him pull over along the highway when she saw the outstanding scenic views of the farmland along the Maryland highway. She got out of the car and stood there taking it all in for a long time and finally made the comment..."The Lord do decorate this earth beautiful." And do I agree.
