"Looking Great For 75"

5 x 7"
oil on masonite

My new painting you see below, "Fifty Shades of Green", took me five days to complete.  I've had the flu.  Today I feel a bit more human and felt like enjoying a quick one - no sketching out, no planned out composition - all I knew is I wanted to paint the Golden Gate Bridge.  I was just there.  It does take your breath away - it's magnificent.  After watching a cool program on TV, about the 75th Anniversary, I simply was inspired.

love this painting of the bridge and the 50 shades of green. I see a bungalow series starting. Also, thanks for the link to the magical bus-I'm passing it on.

"fifty shades of green" made me laugh. That terribly written book is getting so much attention. Oh well. Sorry you have been sick. You did an incredible job with this piece. Love the perspective and bright colors. Feel better!

I just have to say, what can't you paint? OMG these are both wonderful. I too have a love for little old houses. There is just something irresistible about them.
