Over Valentines weekend I was pretty busy, and I never got to my Saturday six-minute sketch, or my Sunday Skies, then on Monday I was spending time with my wonderful little granddaughter, so I didn’t do my Monday Muse.
Hopefully, you all had your own busy weekend and didn’t miss me… or hopefully you did miss me? I don’t know which of those two things I should hope for!
Well, I figured I would update my readers on the progress of my Golden Gate Bridge painting. I worked on it today, adjusting the colors and tones on the Golden Gate Bridge itself, adding some reflections in the San Francisco Bay, and some street lights. The painting is almost done at this point. I need to add in a little more greenery on the closest side of the bay, and then I have to decide whether or not to add in the Science Fiction element I hinted about earlier. I can’t quite make up my mind. I think it makes a nice landscape painting as it is now, but I wonder if adding a little pop culture element to it might improve it a little.
Okay, as it stands now, it is a “serious” painting. A nice San Francisco Bay painting. With the sun setting out at sea, and the Golden Gate bridge standing tall against a dramatic sky. Here it is:
If I add in a little touch of science fiction pop culture, it won’t be viewed as “serious” art anymore, but I like the show I’d be alluding to a lot, and the painting just might sell better with that little bit of “fun” added.
So, what do you think? Should I add a blue police box floating in the sky or not? Warning, your answer may identify you as a fellow Whovian.Should I add a blue police box floating in the sky or not? Warning, your answer may identify you as… Click To Tweet
