After unintentionally taking the month of February off (thanks to a nasty flu) - it felt great to be back at the easel. I mixed it up today - moving from pets back to landscapes.
The first painting (Sun versus Cloud) was inspired by a photo I took at Springbank Park in London on an early October morning. I was drawn to this landscape because of the way the sun hit the tops of the trees.
My second painting takes me back to my home town roots - taken in St. Mary's Ontario at the flats. This historic bridge, known as the "Sarnia Bridge", dates way back to 1858. Part of the Grand Trunk Railway, this line headed west towards Sarnia, Ontario. While no longer an active railway - the bridge was part of a revitalization to create St. Mary's beautiful Grand Trunk Trail. I took this photo on a hot August day when my mom and I were doing our annual "photo" shoot for our homemade pet calendars.
