Shadow Before, Oil on Canvas 24" x 18"

A couple years ago, while painting en plein air, I witnessed this design. At the time, I was in the middle of a painting. Rather than break away and start a new painting, I made a few quick notes in my sketchbook and took a photo. There the idea sat, and simmered

I was looking for design to use as submission to a competition. I flipped through my sketch book and came across the sketches made that autumn afternoon. I reworked the idea a bit. I would like to have worked this in watercolor but due to a time factor, I created the work in oil.

The image has been sent to the competition. For now, I will have to wait to see if the design suits their exhibition.
