Gloria Dei homo vivens – St Irenaeus

my 4th #painting on canvas. Just call me Vincent van No.

I tried to paint a flower – a purple-white lily (real thing) on a black background. I didn’t get very far. So, I painted something else.

The first painting is the black-painted canvas. The second is me attempting to draw a stem. It looked like a wine class. Perhaps it was a sign. Anyway, after a week of looking it, I moved on. I wanted to paint a bridge. I got the inspiration driving north recently. I passed over several of these types of bridges. The final pictures are the progress.
