Highway 63 Emergency

65″ H x 72” W Acrylic on canvas

This substantial abstract painting by Shannon Webster captures a significant moment inspired by a personal experience. During a peaceful sunset evening, Shannon was teaching his daughter to drive when an ambulance suddenly appeared, providing an unexpected lesson in handling stressful emergency situations.

Abbey did great, and soon after surviving the anxiety-ridden situation, and with a renewed appreciation for life, Shannon snapped a beautiful photo. The composition of the setting sun, the illuminated highway reflectors, the back of the ambulance, and the emotions provided the perfect inspiration for this painting. Look closely and you can see the scene, feel the stress, and also tire tread marks incorporated into the artwork, created using tire scraps collected by Shannon the next day.
