I am a contemporary realist painter with a focus on the old, the overlooked, and the under-appreciated beauty that surrounds us in our everyday lives. My desire is to get viewers to notice more about the ordinary places and things that they interact with each day; to see them in a new way.
This painting is a 12" sqaure format image, painted in oils on canvas. The painting is based on a visit to Longwood Gardens after a rain on a hot summer day. I was struck by the misty appearance of the trees in the background, and tried to capture feeling.
