When I visit North Carolina, I always try to take a few walks down our road.  There is a sweet, tiny church, a nice campground, plenty of vacation cabins and this nice stone bridge.  Every time I go it seems to change.  Everyone flocks to the area this time of the year for the fall foliage, which is stunning, but the spring show is just as beautiful.   Full of pastel colors, pinks, grays, seems everywhere you look there is something in bloom.  It's a softer, gentler,  more muted beauty than the bright reds, oranges and yellows you see there this time of the year.

Great surface texture in this painting and your use of gray makes the subtle colors sing. Beautiful! I also love your sunflower in your last post - stunning!

What a great scene and I like your application of paint throughout the painting. It works really well on the stone.

Very lovely, Carol. Did you know of the old Irish legend - if you are crossing over a bridge with a man and there is water running underneath that bridge you must stop and kiss so you will have a wonderful relationship? Mike taught me this when we first got together. After the kiss I asked him how old this Irish legend was and he said, "about one minute, I just made it up." That's a man for ya! We do have a wonderful relationship though, so go figure.

Like everything about this painting, Carol. The composition, texture, color and the reflections.
