Title:Eleanor Rigby

Medium:Acrylic on canvas

Size: 24″X36″

We created a short 3 minute video of my daughter Amy playing cello in the Woodwynn Peace Garden.

You can watch it here    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bm5DIIpYmAE

It was a very cold morning at sunrise and Amy played Eleanor Rigby on her cello. She was a good sport to stick it out for a couple of hours until we got the drone shots of her and of the site. I created the painting listening to Amy’s music in the studio. Samuel Houston’s sculpture is in the centre of the labyrinth where Amy is seated.
