Couple on a park path

Couple on a park path  16x20  Oil on canvas panel

Updated image 3/31/2010

This painting is a composite of a couple of photos that I've seen - the couple was at a county fair near Seattle. The path is a different take on one of my previous posts - House on Smith Ridge Cutoff.  Instead of a country road, I made a park path.

This was painted on one of my homemade canvas over masonite panels. I'll put some "how to" directions in my studio blog when my studio blog is ready for this.  :-)


  1. The couple was obviously painted in Summer Ken! because it looks freezing where you live. Hope you stayed nice and warm inside.

  2. Hi Liz - it IS still COLD and snow/ice is on the ground. Where the sun shines on the streets, they are (for the most part) clear & dry. Melissa & I are warm and dry in our house.

    I painted the summery scene with the couple in an attempt to FEEL warm(er). My studio is comfy with just a little space heater that is on 24 hrs when it's this cold. I don't want my painting supplies to freeze.

    Here's hoping that 2010 will be a good year for you and yours.

  3. Hi Ken
    I don't know if you meant to include some philosophical/thoughtful stuff into this painting, but it takes me beyond that park, I like it very much...
