I took a break from this still-unfinished painting and went to weed the garden.... what was I thinking? It doesn't work to spend a lot of time bending over to make up for all that reaching up -- it just adds to the ways you can be reminded to stretch.
This piece is 48 x 36 and I'm working on it from a smaller sketch I did onsite a couple of weeks ago. The yellow banded reflection in the glass actually should say "Flippin' Pizza" in quite readable reverse type.. but I decided to edit that out. I do have more work to do on the (imaginary -- it's not there really) store name above the door and do some more thinking about how much or how little I want to define the people. I'm also sure that the shadow on the steps is the wrong color for the painting, so I'll play with that too before I get this done.
