This morning I tried a plein air street scene. Bright bits of color, people walking by – I wish I’d painted some of the people or a moving car into this composition. Maybe next time. I was right outside Motophoto at Glenview Road and Harlem. Beautiful day.

The Dairy Bar proper is in the center of this group, with a cafe to the left and a barbershop and Glenview Cycle to the right. A Glenview expert tells me that far right building used to be the village post office.

    Hi Deb – or you should add some bicycles leaning up against the store front, or people riding by! That store just to the right of the Dairy Bar is the bicycle shop owned by Allan and Bobbie Rubin – St. David’s parents!

    As always…love your painting!

      Perfect! I’ll have to try this again, with bicycles. They have a great bike shop there – Glenview Cycle. This is a favorite corner with the library, Viccino’s Pizza, Designer Consigner, and more. Thanks Rindy!

    Sorry I couldn’t get back to the art fair on Sun. Is this still available?
