A SUNNY MORNING ON 33RD STREET
A sunny day for painting and a lot of comments. The urban landscape group set up on 33rd St. next to a popular breakfast spot. Those who dined indoors, came out right where we were painting. Everyone was pleased with breakfast and very chatty about painting. The usual 'I can't draw a straight line' and 'do you sell your paintings' comments were there along with my favorite, 'how long does it take you to do a painting'. My answer is 45 years.
I chose the site because of the warm color notes and cast shadows. The power lines and poles clinched the deal. We did worry about the one hour parking but received a gift. The meter maid came around the corner and the little truck went up in smoke. Following a major kerfuffle, the tow truck came and hauled it away- unlimited parking for the rest of the day.
