It's been a crazy month. I've torn up 4 paintings. Normally I would say that I tear up one painting for every one that I complete. I just wasn't getting the results I wanted with my brushes...I'm still learning! Hopefully I'll get back to at least one or two of the paintings that ended up in the trash - the subject matter is worthy, right now my skills weren't.
So, now I think I may have a keeper - I'm in the early stages of another local landmark in town. There's a pretty cool tobacco shop on University Avenue in Palo Alto that has great stuff behind the front windows, and a couple of Wooden Indian statues guarding either side of the front door. I took a photo of the front of the store just after sundown so that the lighted display cases, and the neon signs would show.
