6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord
I painted this from a photograph I took while visiting Philadelphia last summer. I simplified, which makes a better painting, but also on such a small format it needed simplification. I enjoyed painting this. It's so interesting that a photograph can trigger memories, but painting from photographs is even more amazing. I almost felt like I was on the street in Philadelphia with my camera. The light at the end of the alley attracted me and there were interesting shadows.
Phil and I are going to the Texas State Fair tomorrow. We're meeting three of our grandchildren and their parents and really looking forward to a beautiful day full of laughs and, of course, fried ...... something!! It's Texas/OU game tomorrow, too. YIKES!
HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEKEND!
