BTW, stop taking pics when you are driving... LOL!
I have this sudden and urgent need to paint a cute old car, so I went hunting for a reference photo. I didn't find one, but I came upon this painting of yours, and I just love it! Caryl, my advice is skip the Starbucks if you do come back, and go for a non-chain coffee shop with a little more heart and a lot less corporate! They are darn inviting looking, though!
I still have yet to find a painting that fascinates me as much as this one does. Oh how I love all the lights. The Starbucks shop is so inviting. I have never had a Starbucks coffee but if I ever went overseas again I would have to give them a try. Where is this painting now? I hope you kept it in your private collection.
Stu, just revisited this work. It is so good. The feeling of the painting, with the colours, the lights on trees and shops and cars. I do like this very much. Feel as though am following behind the car in front and travelling down the street. Any more like this?
That is a great one Stu
Caryl, Thanks. The little lights are on the trees year around, but they only show up when the trees are bare in the winter. I shot my reference photo through my car windshield. The little lights are just dabs of white in the center of some warm yellow. Stu
