A Little Bit of a Break

Pin It
Balboa Market II, Oil 14" x 11"
So, the school fundraiser is over (it was a very successful event!) and now I can relax for a day. On Sunday I have 50 coming over for dinner. A family event. I know I am crazy but I can't say no. I also finished the commission. This painting has a very romantic story. It's new owner met her husband on Balboa Island on Topaz Street. His birthday is today and I think it is a very sweet gift!

Cool painting and story.
I don't know how you juggle so much at once!

Hi Leslie,
It's nice! I'm sure the owner's husband would be so pleased. What a great idea for a birthday gift!
By the way, did you use only your "killer knife?" but nothing else on this one? How did you do the lettering for the signs? That's just amazing.

Very serene colors - love the story and the painting.

I always say... if I have to clean my house for 1 guest, I might as well invite 50! Have fun and hope you can relax afterwards!

Peter - I forgot to mention that YES I DID USE A BRUSH for the lettering in this painting. I tried to limit it to the knife but is wasn't working the way I wanted it. Good catch!

Really like how the shapes of the building break up the piece into a great composition. Nice job.
