Hofflander’s Bridge

I spent last Saturday afternoon painting at the Dandelion Wine Fine Arts Festival in Waukegan. The day was perfect, and all kinds of interesting people stopped by to chat. I painted Hofflander’s Bridge, a small bridge connecting the two sections of the festival over a little stream. Here is the finished piece (12×16, acrylic on gessoboard). The two children at the bottom peering into the stream are actually the same child-I painted my daughter into the picture when she happened to pose like that. She looked at the painting and asked me to paint her again, but I told her I couldn’t have two children in matching clothes. So she changed her clothes so I could paint her again.


Here’s a bonus shot of my husband took of me while I was painting. It’s amazing to me how much the perspective of a scene¬†changes just a few steps back.
