Under the bridge

My latest painting finished today.

A friend who had seen my website where I sometimes put a detail of my paintings, at first thought that the details were paintings that I had decided to re-paint. In this case I decided to try it. This full painting is a detail of a previous painting. (one could go on and on ending up abstract)
