|King Street (Old Town Alexandria, Va) 11x14" oil on canvas (sold)|
I just got the exciting news this painting sold this afternoon.
Old Town Alexandria is one of my favorite places to paint. I really enjoyed doing this painting. I wanted to try to paint something very impressionistic. It is a very different style for me. I blurred the source photo so I couldn't get caught up in the details. (It works much better for me than squinting!)
Funny story about this painting: My parents like to see my work so I usually email copies to them as I finish paintings. When Dad got this one he sent me a reply that I needed to resend it because the photo of the painting was blurry! I had to explain that's the way it was supposed to look. Oh well, I loved it.
