10 x 5-1/2 Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board
Oh My Goodness! At the last minute I decided to attempt Karin Jurick's DSFDF Challenge for weeks 44 and 45 and immediately found myself so far out of my comfort zone a map was needed just to stay on track! First of all, in order for the painting to be the least bit "Romantically Realistic" (as is my style), the power poles and lines had to go. Right? Maybe not... I see many artists worked them into charming design elements as did Karin in her piece. I seem to have lost the depth and rolling hills! Darn! And I tried to create a focal point by placing a red car near the traffic light in the left corner. Not many cars on my street so guess it had to be Sunday morning, thus the title.
Whew! So this is why it's called a challenge!
