The bridge over this stream at Ringwood Manor had attracted my attention more than once. However, the actual bridge was little more than a flat, nondescript metal bridge, but the setting around the bridge was attractive. 13. Using my imagination, I transformed the metal bridge into the stone bridge as pictured in the painting. I also changed the season from fall (when I did the original sketch) to a snowy winter day. How easy it is for the painter with his/her brush to modify and reshape the world! Would that change was that easy. Instead, change for the better, whether personal or social, is often a slow, tedious, and sometimes courageous process. However, perhaps the painter, with his effortlessness facility to change, might at least be a reminder that we do have the freedom to modify our personal behavior as well as that of the society in which we live.
