I went walking today with our white poodle Cleo. I like to go to Carrier Park in Asheville. It was an industrial space by the river that has been made a beautiful park. The interesting thing I always notice is the noise. There is an interstate across the river and a very busy road on the other side. I once painted a small series in honor of this park, Take Me to the River. It's a funny/interesting duality, industry and the beauty of western North Carolina.
