Watercolor on heavyweight paper



I think of this painting as having very cool colors giving it a sense of dream. I've been on a few interesting camping trips but in this painting I decided to make the tents more carnival like. I once went on a camping trip with several people and we had no sooner unpacked our things in making a camp when one individual said, "I must go to the store now".  It is very hard when you think about going out to nature to imagine why this store trip was so important. It wasn't like we had forgotten matches or something equally necessary. Was it those colors and packages and artificial experience of a store that had suddenly becomes very exciting? For this reason, in this painting you will see a figure walking to somewhere imagined.
