This image caught my eye as I was headed to Spring Bull Gallery for gallery night. I passed by on my way to get a coffee and noticed the light on the wall and the amazing cast shadows of the hanging basket. The wrought iron bench lent the perfect geometry and contrast of hard edges to the composition and I stopped for a few photos. I knew I had to paint it and though I mainly work from direct observation- this time the photo would be my reference. No regrets!
