Johnson Street Bridge - oil 8x10 plein air
This is Victoria's new bridge which replaces the old Johnson Street Blue Bridge. My plein air outing took place in perfect weather, I had my Van Gogh wide brim straw hat and sunscreen, a long sleeve shirt and shorts. Wow. Lookout Clint Eastwood!
I painted the new bridge from a spot on Centennial Park (not to be confused with Centennial SQUARE). Google it, it is in Victoria BC.
How do I feel painting in the open air? Rejuvenated, fulfilled. What I am placed on this earth for. The only game in town. Setting up the easel is a ritual performance in a very good way. Onlookers don't bother me, as long as you keep the covid-19 distance and don't distract me from the work. What wonderful work painting is.
