21x21 inches, oil on canvas
I finished this painting yesterday. It had been close to done for more than two weeks, but I just ignored it until I realized that it was quietly driving me a little crazy sitting there unfinished. The subject matter is the Japanese bridge at out local botanical garden. I took the winter photo several years ago, but then experimented with altering the original photo with a filter program, and cropping the image to a square format. I painted from the altered photo, and was pleased with the results. This painting is larger than I usually work, and a departure from figurative work. I'll take it to the gallery tomorrow.
