Belle Isle Footbridge

Belle Isle Footbridge
To a collector in Bloomfield Hills, MI

Oil on linen/panel, 2010, 5"x7"
Today's daily painting is a winter landscape of a footbridge over the canoe stream on Belle Isle. As an artist one of the things I love about Detroit is that it is a city of such strong contrasts.

This is a treat!
The slick hard detail of the bridge, against that windswept snow
.. The color pops!
The woods in the background, with abstact shapes and colors.
This is surely a treat!

I just love that bright red bridge in a sea of white snow! It draws one right into the painting~~~
