Back at it a second day in a row. I'm down at Wooster Square in New Haven CT. I find this place incredibly magically especially during the springtime. The cherry blossoms line the streets, kids are playing in the park. Lots of people walking their dogs. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival is happening in a few days and you can just feel the excitement in the air. Pink Rain - full of joy and wonder!
It was a little cooler today than yesterday and the spot I selected was tucked away in the shade of a large tree. I love the colors of this beautifully crafted brownstone home. The teal color trim, red brick and burnt red-orange transom over the front door and first floor windows gave a nice backdrop to the pink blooms. There was so much architectural details that I had to leave out but what I hope I conveyed was the essence of this picturesque scene.
As you can see in the photo below, the petals would float right through the air and stick to my canvas or palette! At first I thought ... oh no... I've got to get this off... it's going to ruin the painting.. but second thought... let me leave it there, it's great for matching colors!
The last photo in the group below is from inside the Famous Pepe's Pizza! My friend Patty and I finished our painting session by splitting a small sausage pizza.... what a fantastic day!
