Location, location

I knew where I wanted to paint today couldn’t really find a good spot to park. In one direction I was facing into the sun, and the other side of the street had no parking spots. Since I was out there with my sketch stuff and didn’t want to waste a perfectly good outing, I drew what was out my side window. Kind of an odd view with a bit of building and a lot of white but who can resist a fire hydrant in the snow?

    I’m so glad you were prevented from sketching what you originally wanted to. They couldn’t match the strong graphic quality of what you were able to get out that side window! Bravo, love it!!

  6. This is gorgeous Shari! Love the pop of red and the lovely shadows in the snow.

    Love the textures. And the fire hydrant too. Is the tall yellow sign there so the fire hydrant is locatable in case it gets covered in snow?

    Love the beautiful composition. You always inspire me to do better!! Living in AZ now, but growing up in Chicago, your paintings always make me long for a (few) snowy days!

    It may not have been the view you wanted, but it was a great one! Love it!

    Well, it looks as if no dogs have found your hydrant. So, no yellow snow!

    The hydrant – like one of JMWTurner’s ‘little red soldiers’!
