Today’s painting is a good example of how I find subject matter I had a story I wanted to tell, but didn’t know what building would help me tell that story.
I walked downtown and was looking at sights and wasn’t quite satisfied. Then, I saw my neighbor and proprietress of “Funky Fashions” in downtown Talent. We had a chat. As I started to walk away, I looked across the street at “Porto Gelato”. Perfect!
Porto Gelato is a new business in our town. It is family owned. Italian ice cream, what could be better?
So, I sat down and enjoyed myself. Later, my husband and I came back and sampled their gelato. It was delicious. We will have to try it again!
PS. I did a watercolor sketch of Funky Fashions last May. Here’s the link to my “Funky Fashions”; please take a look!
