Stone Bridge

23 Aug


11″ x 14″

This was painted plein air at Mingus Park in Coos Bay, Oregon. I have altered the stone supported culvert into a stone bridge, but kept the lovely landscaping with iris and skunk cabbage along the stream. The smoothness of the stream contrasts with all of the textures of the stone and plants.

White’s Blue Iris, 2017, 12″ x 18″

Once in awhile I have the urge to rework an older painting. ¬†This was originally painted in 2011 at White’s garden in Woodbine, Iowa. ¬† The painting was reworked in 2017 to make the iris more blue with sharper edges and the foliage softer.
