Porto Gelato: Day 6 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

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.

Drawing Talent:  Porto Gelato

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!

  1. Hello Margaret. I am the owner of Porto Gelato. I love your watercolor of our little shop and would love to get a copy if possible. I would like to frame it and display it in the shop with your name on it. Let me know your thoughts on this.

    Thanks, Garry
