Killdeer Drive

The blooming dogwoods at the top of this street led me to this location.  In my pre-sketch, I found that I downplayed the bright white blooms.  As I painted,  the whole scene demanded my attention,  and the white blooms simply did not work in the composition.  I painted them out,  with only the slightest hint that they were ever there.  It is a funny thing how a painting will take on a life of it's own sometimes,  no matter what I thought my focus would be initially.  This 1561st painting in 1561 days has already sold to the family who lives on that upper bluff :)
