When I drove out to Aberdeen last month I came across this old road. There was something very appealing about it to me; its disheveled, over-grown, leading-to-nowhere state juxtaposed against the bold, under control canola fields on either side struck me as something I wanted to try to paint. There was actually a sign posted nearby that said "road closed" so that seemed like the natural title for the painting.
