"MY PARADISE"

video
Ah! Just my attempt at a 1 1/2 minute movie making of the above painting.
The place is a mystery to me by an unknown source, but the photo was so compelling I had to paint it. The painting is 64"x20". I used a very smooth gessoed canvas that I wet down the back of, then stretched it over the 64" bars and after it thoroughly dried, I began the journey and delight of doing the above painting.
