One thing I really enjoy doing is exploring the place I live. It was really fun when I was a graduate student, because I only lived a few hours from my parents. Dad and I would go explore Indiana. One day we went to Park County, which has the highest concentration of covered bridges in the world. It was fun exploring. We took lots of pictures, and then stopped and looked around at the local college.
I really enjoyed this scene. It was a beautiful late fall day. The sun was bright and warm. Most of the leaves had fallen, but I love the way I could see some bright warm leaves through the dark tunnel of the bridge. The contrast of bright warm colors against dark cool colors really draws your eye. This creates a focal point. In order to get viewers to see your artwork, and spend time with it, it is important to create strong focal points.
