The small leads the way

One year ago I did this small painting, which I loved right away.
My love of landscape and for the park in the painting has become
greater over time.  And now if at all possible we go and visit
the park at least once a week.  We feel known there by the birds
we feed, even by some of the people, although the park is huge and
on the other side of town.

This year I finished a larger painting based on the same view, and
using the smaller work as a jumping off point.  It's Saturday night.
It's a busy holiday weekend, and I hope you enjoy seeing these
two again.  Both are available if you're in the mood for a
visual escape.  I will deliver them, masked, gloved and social
distanced if you are in the Toronto region.
