VIEW FROM THE BRIDGEPURCHASE HERE
This pastel started with a photograph taken late in the afternoon...it was one of those "stop the car" moments when I knew the sun was making gorgeous shadows on the snow and in the river. Lucky for me I have a patient husband who took a nap while I snapped many photos of the area. Back in the studio I became interested in the shadows cast by the bridge itself....can you spot yours truely? Actually this could be any viewer putting himself right into the painting. Can't you just smell the cold air? Anyway, this is 8 x 8 on yellow-gold paper and is in a square, white mat sized 14 x 14. It was on its way to a gallery in NC but missed the size of the box by a mere 2"....thus I get to enjoy it here at home a bit longer...or sell it!
