Park Along the Bay 22

Park Along the Bay SF, 6x6, oil on panel
Squeaking by to Day 22 in the 30 paintings in 30 Day challenge! Keeping to a simple subject so I feel like I am accomplishing a painting and not just a block-in. This is right near SF bay on a very wet drizzly day. The rain had stopped for awhile but it was only a matter of time before it began again. We were in San Francisco to see the Impressionist Pt 2 from the D'Orsay Museum in Paris. It was Pt 2 because it was the second of two exhibitions on loan from the D'Orsay while it was undergoing renovations and it was the later "Impressionists" as they moved on to other directions. So the show included VanGogh, Bonnard and Vuilliard among others. Pt 1 had the more typically known names associated with the impressionists. We could only go to one and I wanted my husband to see these later names. He had never seen a VanGogh in person before. He was suitably impressed.

Nice Painting!!! Love the negative space around the top of the trees. The textures and the colors in this piece are gorgeous!

Tam...I almost did not post this one thinking it too simplistic. I haven't posted the past few days as I am not happy with what I have done. By the end of the week I am pretty tired and I think it shows. Thank you for this needed encouragement!
