This is my submission to the local fundraiser Art meets Heart. It benefits the ArtGarage in Green Bay for local art classes and exhibitions. All the small canvases will be put together to make a huge heart and be displayed at the airport for a whole year.
There's a bridge I go over a few times a week and it's been so beautiful lately with the gray skies and the fall colors on the trees! The other day, I went over it and was amazed at the reflections in the water and the unusually calm water...it almost looked like it sparkled! The sky was again a gray backdrop but there was a break in the clouds and this little strip of cerulean blue sky peeking through. I just had to paint it. This is also my submission to this week's DailyPaintworks challenge as it is about painting water!
I'm done with the large commission. I really like how it turned out with the reflections in the water. I hope they will enjoy it for years to come!
Every time I work on a large canvas like that I remember how much fun it is and I tell myself I need to do it more often.. :)
