This is a good example of looking at something with a different perspective. I have never seen the Eiffel Tower in real life. I have, however, seen fireworks over many Texas lakes, lakes small enough that you can see the tree line across the water. That is what I originally painted, and because I didn’t sign it while it was wet, I tried it different orientations. I love it turned! My imagination turned the horizon into a spire – ta-da! I will post the original orientation below. Also, it is painted on arches oil paper. If there is an art person out there that explain how paper gives me the most wonderful flow of paint, and crisp brush strokes I would like to know. Why does primed canvas absorb more paint than paper???
Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing.
