The completed work... without the bridge.

With Bridge

I love Charleston!

Today I received this title from three friends… they told me they have a photo that resembles a painting I was working and then changed.

The painting is of a landscape of Lisa and Danny’s backyard in Charleston. While working on the piece I considered doing a painting that incorporated the bridge ( Arthur J. Ravenel, Jr. Bridge or Cooper River Bridge) but I didn’t know how to place it. in the painting tohave the effect I wanted.  I could not see it in my photos and figure you could not see the bridge from their home, but I knew the general direction. As an abstract artist I figured I could place it in the sky and get away with it. However, I later painted it out of the painting.

Today I received a photo of the same scene and there is my abstract painting… no wait it is reality.

Here is the photo and the painting with the bridge and how the painting looks completed.

As I was painting the landscape i did not know you could actually see the bridge so that adds to story. Now I may have to do some new for Danny’s office.
