Thank you for  your comments on my 2 photos of me in the gallery.  We had 2 really bad nights of super cold and wet so not as many people showed up for the opening.  Shoppers will be coming I am sure for Christmas.  smile

Your right Michael .. looks like a Mexican stand-off. The truth be said, when I got there there were 1000's of tourists (kept back by a roped perimeter)..mainly Japanese and Germans. Having fought my way to the front ,started sketching. Next thing 1000's of eyes on me!!

So determined to paint them all out!!!

Hi Michael,

Spot on, you won't believe me when I tell you this. The ref pic was square(ish), my paper wasn't...and I centered it !! LOL  For sure one argument against picking up a brush after midnight :-)  Thank you for dropping by and pointing it out.

I love your Cafe scene and the smoker (being one).  They make me want to pick up oils again.  Thinking of doing the lake using it.

Cheers, Jen

Hi Michael, I don't know if you have a public library available where you live but often they may have Edgar Payne or one of the libraries they share interlibrary loans with.  It's free for a few weeks and you could check it out again and again. More convenient to own but until you find a copy perhaps you can borrow one.  Best!
