Street Scenes

Bodega Y Tapas, 16" x 12"

There's nothing quite like the street scenes in Europe, or anywhere else for that matter, that make such interesting  and inviting subject matter for painting. There's something about the uniquely distinct architecture and people enjoying the street scene on a beautiful sunlit day, that makes us wish we were there to share the moment! I thought this scene of just such a spot in France, had a wonderful sense of perspective to it, that seemed to draw you in and urge you to walk through under the distant arch into another equally interesting space.

On another note, I will be one of the featured artists this month at the Red Chair Gallery here in Bend, this Friday, November 2nd during the First Friday Art Walk. It's a great opportunity to tour the town's galleries and see some terrific art. Come by between 5 and 9 in the evening and see some of my watercolors and say hello! See you there!
