A nymph and her hound

The latest challenge from the DSDF blog was a marble sculpture of one of the goddess Diana's companions, a nymph and her hound. We had to include the entire statue. Boy, this was a hard challenge for me. I started by saying “nope, not gonna do it”, and then started to paint an abstract of the statue. But then Susan said I shouldn’t bail, just because this wasn’t in my comfort zone. So here it is.

Autumn Lane

In Florida we just do not have fall colors that you can speak of. So when I saw a photo of fall colors on a street in Boise, that my friend Susan gave me, I had to try to paint it. With lots of artistic license, I think it turned out darker than I wanted but I did learn a lot.
