A Break from Design for a Personal Art Project!
I've had this painting sitting on my easel since last summer, when I shot the photo that inspired it at the Hyland Park Reserve a couple miles from my house. Today I finally finished it! It was done with acrylic on stretched canvas and measures 10" x 20". Now I can say I at least did ONE painting this year! I used to do a lot more painting, but as marriage, kids, and work came into my life in full force, I just haven't had the time.
We've enjoyed many wonderful visits to the Hyland Park Reserve and the Richardson Nature Center right here in Bloomington, MN. Once you're on a trail in the reserve, you'd never know you were right in the middle of one of the largest cities in Minnesota. Nature is far as the eye can see, and we always get to see wildlife, big and small!
Up next I have started a mixed media art piece, with the subject matter being a sunset view of the Eiffel Tower that I shot on our trip to Paris this year. I'm determined to do a little art this summer and am glad I was able to carve out a little time today between paid projects!
