Entering The Public Garden

Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
I took the photo that I used as inspiration for this painting just last Thursday. I have been amazed how long the colors of fall have lasted this year. I don't know if that is because of the drought we had this summer, but I sure am enjoying it.
Last Friday was our last day in the Back Bay of Boston before our office move to the Financial District. I had been taking photos of the area during my lunch time to get some painting inspiration. When I saw this view, I knew it had to become a painting. I was able to start and finish it this weekend while working at The Artist's Studio and Gallery at Patriot Place.
