COVERED BRIDGE - FINAL

It doesn’t seem like a hard thing to change, but I had to wrap my head around it and tried repainting that area several times. Finally I just let it sit a while and then decided to use fog as the metaphor, plus that would not entail repainting. After I floated in the fog and touched up some of the trees, I let him see it again.

This time he was very happy with it, so I signed and varnished it and framed it and have now presented it to him.

It's beautiful, Deb! I really like the idea of the fog as metaphor: you have the perfect balance between the mystery and the color. Really well done!

Its a beauty Deb. The background colours against the darkness of the covered bridge are lovely.

I was in New Brunswick a couple of weeks ago and saw my first covered bridges. I can see the appeal in wanting a painting of one.
