A Summer Afternoon Along Black's Creek
#190702 oil on canvas 16 x 20 plein air
A return to a favorite spot; Black's Creek in Quincy, Massachusetts. It's presented here in it's new frame, as it hangs in our living room. I painted this picture on site at the creek and, as always, people stopped by to watch and talk. I welcome visitors while I work and enjoy chatting about what I'm doing. My visitors usually tend to be friendly and polite. BUT... On this particular day I was visited by a woman who got under my skin a little. I'll write a bit about that encounter in my blog because as "annoyed" as I was by her, she gave me the opportunity to think about my art...and the art world in general.
