Divisadero



Acrylic on Canvas Board - 9 x 12 inches SOLD

I got some bigger boards, so I thought I'd try some of the things that work on the tiny one, but on a larger surface. I took this photo at my lunch walk and thought it would be fun to paint some day, but I'm not ready to do people, I thought. Then I decided that someday is pretty much whenever you decide, so I just dove in.

Turns out people are just other blobby shapes, well at least in impressionism. Well at least the way I paint 'em.

Yes Gringo, someday is now! You've got the talent and the eye, just keep going for it. I personally have been avoiding landscapes but cityscapes with people are another genre I haven't tackled. My hat is off to you, you're doing some wonderful stuff since I last peeked in here. Man, I wish I were so prolific.

Great words of encouragement.
Always good to hear, especially on a day when I've painted a stinker or two!

Thanks,
gringo
