My painting depicts a classic Boston scene, namely the footbridge over the duck pond at the Boston Public Garden. I used multi-colored piles of paint (unblended), applied in a thick layer for the high key bridge supports, and the darkest transparents under the bridge. And although it was October, few trees had peak autumn colors. That didn’t deter me (and other painters) from pumping up the greens with yellow, gold and red. The many trees were reflected in the duck pond, broken up by the surface ripples. I noticed several couples pausing on the bridge, enjoying their romantic moment. Hugs, selfies and even engagements happen here. This famous spot is a beloved Boston scene, and a perfect scene to share with your beloved.
