Beechy Point

I just finished touching up my latest painting. It’s a big one at 28 x 36 inches. When working on a painting this big it is easy to get caught up in the details. When I thought I completed the painting a few days back I put it up on the wall and left it there for a while. As I repeatedly looked at it over the next day I was able to see things that I never noticed when I was less than one meter away from it. So today the painting came off the wall and I touched up all the little things that were bugging me.

The location of this painting is special to my wife and I as it is the spot where I proposed to her back in 2008. I told my girlfriend I was going to take a photo of us at the top of the hill. I set up the tripod hit the timer and then got down on one knee and popped the question. When I opened up the ring box the ring somehow popped out and nearly tumbled down the large hill. I quickly snatched it up, and put it back in the box and held it out just as the camera took the photo. Just for the record, she said yes.
