I can’t recall my inspiration for this— the gaping doorways in pictures of ruined churches and monasteries in Europe, or the postcard of a highway going right through the trunk of one of the mammoth trees out west. I may have combined ideas like these. Until I got it locked into paint the vision obsessed me like a recurring dream.

View from the driver's seat of a car, showing the highway going through the ruins of a church, situated on a great plain extending to the horizon
