Duncan Gardens, oil on canvas, 34 x 44 inches, work in progress copyright ©2017

Another painting in the Manito Park series, this one of Duncan Gardens, a beautiful formal garden with a fountain at its center.

This was begun on a canvas that had already been used for another painting, one that I was never happy with and which had remained unresolved. I rarely do this, unless I want some pre-made paint texture to fight against, as was the case in this work.
