Oak and Polk

Arcadia Paintout!

First painting yesterday morning at the GREAT Arcadia Paintout.   Overwhelming choices in this unique town!  I noticed the red stop light glowing against the pink building, that and the green polk sign were my inspiration.  This painting is available through the Martin Art Gallery (863 494 2100) through December.

Congrats on 1st prize! I'm wondering if you were the only one to paint the Model T. How could anyone resist.

Oak and Polk is nice too. I like the purple tones in both paintings.

Thanks, Susan! There were two other women standing near me... we were going to title our paintings, 1,2, and 3. Just found out it's a Model A, not a model T!
