"Red Shrine" Japan Virtual Paintout

8 1/2 X 11 Pastel & Oil Mixed
on Cranston colored paper.  sold

I am such a procrastinator it's embarrasing sometimes.  Today was the last day to submit for this months Virtual Paintout.  I even had the location picked out the first week of the month.  Anyway, I found the Itsukushima Shrine along a walking path via Google Street View.  Some of the views had it completely covered in water and others like the above where people can walk out to see the shrine.

When I first saw this in the avatar, I had to find out where this was. Great job!
