Here is yet another familiar sight in Mayerthorpe. As I look back, I am surprised at how many paintings I’ve done of my home town – from the outskirts to side streets, and now all the way down Main.

A familiar scene from the town of Mayerthorpe.
I was never happy with this painting so I decided to rework the background. The main focus should be the bird (which I like), but the background was much too busy for that to happen. I removed many of the blossoms, toned down the green and generally simplified the whole thing. I’m not sure it is a total success, but I do like the new version better.
