"Longfellow in October" oil 16 x 12

The Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge topic for last month was "October Sky".  Sitting in traffic the other day, along Storrow Drive, I looked left and saw the iconic Longfellow Bridge late in the day framed by the Storrow Drive overpass and the autumn trees.  Beautiful.  You can see some process photos here as well.  I laid in an orange ground to add some glow through the painting. It was interesting to consider skyholes both in the trees and through the bridge itself.  I liked the combination of vertical shapes in the trees and the skyline, along with the sense of "up" conveyed by the overpass.  Boston is a lovely town, elegance in many directions.
As always, thank you for looking.
