    Rainbow Bridge painting

    Not long after Chessie passed away back in August 2010, I went through a mid-life crisis, needing a big change from where my job was leading me. Not wanting to get stuck in another dead end job, I tried figuring out what to do. So, one night while doing dishes, I was watching Bob Ross on TV. I'd watched him since I was a kid and had thought from time to time of taking up painting and selling my work as a possible career. That's when it hit me, and I began work on starting a new career doing paintings.

    Since I started painting in early 2011 (http://chatanuga.org/KLWArt.html), I'd been wanting to do a painting of the Rainbow Bridge, although I wasn't sure exactly how I wanted it to look. That summer, I'd taken some pictures of a covered bridge near where my dad grew up (http://chatanuga.org/pics/misc/parker02.jpg) and decided that it and the setting was the look I was wanting for my version of the Rainbow Bridge.

    So, this past Sunday afternoon, I finally did my version of the Rainbow Bridge, dedicating it to Chessie and all of the cats and dogs who have graced my life.

    What a nice talent you have! I can paint absolutely nothing ( although I used to watch Bob Ross), so I am really impressed by what you'e done!

    That is really lovely! I can picture my recently departed Fister being there, if there was a few smaller bushes he could hide in - but he would surely be chewing the grass.

    Lovely! A river for drinking, and for the fishes, meadows for romping and small mammals, woods, the covered bridge leading over, and it has a misty, ethereal quality to it. Very nice!
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!
