Finding the Bridge


There is a call to artist at one of our Gallery's. I'm considering entering this painting. It still needs some definition and more shadows and dappled sun light. So my fellow bloggers wish me luck please.

  2. Hi Vic,
    Thank you So much my friend. I am really nervous about a juried show. Oh well what's the worse that can happen? Rejection, I can handle that, as long as I can paint everyday the rest is just the topping on the cake. I love your latest painting of Sandy. Have a great night.

  5. Good luck with this entry Joan, it looks like a very Long Islindish subject! Is that the bridge to the Atomic central that was never finish and for witch you still pay taxes?

  6. I love how that bridge draws the eye, but is at the same time softly hidden in the distance!

  8. Hi Mariano, thank you. I did very little work on the bridge. It actually was the bridge in Ward Melville park that Mike and I were looking for one Sunday. Have a great weekend.
