All Wired and Cabled to Go! 8x8 oil on canvas

Oh, how I wish I was there.  A trip on cable car sounds like fun.  This is the current challenge on Lee Brown's, "A Day Not Wasted".  I love an opportunity to paint something out of my daily life.  Public transportation like this is just not available in the OC.
I did quite a bit of editing and cropping from the original photo and hopefully made it my own.  I am challenged by reds and the suggestion of pedestrians waiting to ride the cable car.  So this was a perfect challenge for me.
I could only think, that if I were getting on a cable car, that I would have coffee in one hand and a newspaper in the other to enjoy my ride.

Bet some nostalgia buff would love this one with the old cable car. Really, really nice one, Dori.
