Here is a photo I took at Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, in July.
Here is a painting of that same scene. Yes, it is, filtered through my imagination, though.
It’s 8″ x 8″, acrylics, India ink, and NeoColor I crayons, done in September, 2017.
Recently I picked out a few photos to use as painting references. Here is what happened.

“Pedestrian” was started during the plein air event I did in Chestnut Hill in June. I couldn’t finish it there so I took it home and ended up with a scene somewhat like the original. I added a person walking along the sidewalk – the painting looked a little lonely without some sign of life.
The second painting came from my head, no reference to the real world. I added a person to it, too, for the same reason as “Pedestrian”.
These paintings were done in June, 2017. They are 6″ x 6″, in acrylics. It may interest you to know they are reworkings of paintings I did a while back. The more I looked at them in their earlier versions, the more bla I felt about them. So – personality transplant. Or amendment. Anyway, I like these better.
