I just finished this oil painting yesterday. After starting it in the spring, taking the summer off, then finally reinstating regular painting days, I’m done! I took this picture while visiting the tiny town of  Etna, CA during our honeymoon in 2010. Cheng was sleeping in, as usual, so I went for an early walk. I really liked how the sunrise played with light and shadows along this wall. In the painting, it was fun to be very loose on the flowers up front to contrast with the tight lines of the bottles in the window. Surprisingly, the brick wall was the easiest and quickest part of the entire painting once I figured out the general pattern and did some math to get the scale just right.
