12x12 Fruit Stand
I just finished painting this scene of a fruit stand and noticed a little slackening of the canvas so I ran cold water over the back and set it in the sun to stretch. I came back out in about an hour and noticed that ash from the fires that are raging about 30 miles down the road had entered the painting. I took a photo of it but now I think I will clear most, if not all of them off. But it does capture a moment in history doesn't it!?
I was painting this for inclusion in an upcoming 12x12 show where it will be for sale. If anyone wishes to purchase it before then for $325, let me know and I will find something else for the show.
