Beard Park Fayetteville, oil on panel, 9 x 12 inches

This painting was commissioned by a friend from college who grew up near this park. The sky in the reference photo I worked from was overexposed and pretty much blank, so I had to invent one. Originally I had a more moody, twilight feel in mind, but the painting took another direction to a more bright, daylight feel. The geese were added to add some interest to the sky.
