The lyrics "hot fun in the summer time. . ." keeps going through my head!  Well, hot or not here in Bend, this was definitely fun to paint!  Everytime I look at their faces I smile.  I enjoyed, too, the opportunity to really slather on the paint for the fountain effect.  The scene is the fountain at Waterfront Park in Portland, OR.

"Lunching With Friends at Le Pain Quotidian" (sold)

Oil on Panel

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted the watercolor study for this!!  Busy times, lots of traveling, teaching and illustration work!  Too, after three and a half years, it has been time for a break from attempting to paint or draw for the blog on a nearly daily basis (and feeling guilty when I can't get to it).   I hope to get back to posting on a more regular basis soon!

One of the trips I took earlier this summer was to the east coast.  This painting is from the restaurant Le Pain Quotidian in New Canaan, CT.  I have so many paintings I want to do from that trip, which also included NYC!!  I can't wait to get to them!
