She likes how the morning sun
casts a shadow behind the artwork,
and asked me to paint a permanent shadow on the wall,
so it could be enjoyed at all times of the day.
An interesting idea, isn't it?
With the sculpture still on the wall,
I quickly under-painted the morning shadows
before the sun moved and the images changed....
then set about adding dabs of
purple, green and bronze.
You can see how casually this is painted.
But the result is effective.
I like how the painting
gives the sculpture added dimension.
Like having a little pine grove on your wall.
It's a perfect piece of art for someone
who lives in a neighborhood called The Pines.
