The Virtual Paintout, Japan

Springtime
13" x 9 1/2"
oil on board
$45.

I painted this for The Virtual Paintout.  The challenge being to create a painting from a google map – this month's challenge is Japan. I chose this small lane because I could see the possiblilites, and because it reminded me of a small lane by my house.

You can see the actual place I painted from here, and though my picture looks much different, I only fudged by a few weeks into the season, the rest is true to the map, I hope.
