Dewey Ave

Dewey Ave
11x14, acrylics on canvas

Wow, two paintings in one day! I'd never manage that if I wasn't on vacation. I've been at this one since noon, working around phone calls from my kids. I was driving in Old Orchard Beach last spring and saw this very, very yellow house. The afternoon sun was making interesting shadows, so I snapped a photo. As usual, I simplified. I left out street signs and pretty much did my own thing with the buildings across the way. But I think I succeeded in capturing the flavor of the neighborhood.
