BW's Surf Shop-6x8-SOLD

From Ocracoke waterfront. as i was doing this one the guy must have been getting ready to close. he'd come out and take the surfboard down when i was halfway done with it and then came and got the sandwich board as i was painting it in real fast. then when i sighed with frustration over that a lady in a huge SUV parked right in front of me blocking my view of half the scene. she jumps out and says in her best i'm not going to move if you say yes voice, " am i blocking your view?" DUHHH!
i'm the one who doesnt belong in the middle of the parking lot painting so i say in my best you werent going to move if i said yes voice, "youre alright" Liar Liar pants on fire! thats why it pays to develope your photographic memory if youre going to plein air paint.

I love your description of this painting experience! You have a way with words...just like you have a way with paint. I love your bright colors and loose brushwork. I can't wait, everyday, to see what you'll post next.
