Old Town Afternoon 6x8 oil SOLD






It was an opening in the rain we have been having and a chance to paint. Old Town Orange is a fun place to walk and eat and enjoy a different visual experience.
I was fortunate to have a painting buddy, Dana Cooper, along to walk the town with, take some photos and find a little piece of pavement to set up and paint. The light was amazing , but fleeting as the clouds would blow in and out. So amazing how light changes and you find yourself chasing it or stopping and taking what you caught. We had a few hours before the clouds moved in to stay and the rain came down.
