Beauty and the Beast I

“Beauty and the Beast I” Available #5×7 watercolor study.

I came across this scene as I was driving on a rural Georgia highway, and it was such an odd juxtaposition I had to stop my car and pull over.

The sunflowers were past their bloom, yet provided such a beautiful setting for power plant. I pulled on my rubber boots and climbed a steep, muddy hill to capture this scene with my camera.

I would have loved to have painted it plein air, but I draw the line at painting along the side of a highway. I won’t go that far in the name of beauty!
