Oil 10 x 10
A chilly overcast late winter day but as a plein air painter, as spring approaches, you hear the herald call and you get yourself out there to paint. Always feels a bit rusty at first but also like airing out the house on a spring day, it feels good. This local liquor store with its bright blue awnings and colorful ads in the windows has been on my list of places to paint. I found my vantage point and thought the crosswalk and the street sign added some urban energy to the design but is also familiar and pulls you into the painting.
