Riding the Bus


Fake Plein Air (Dodge-ing Traffic By Riding the Bus)

I have always admired the P.A. practitioners and while I am constantly out photoging, it is nevertheless cold and dangerous out there, what with cranky bears and bottle collectors. So I closed my eyes and read the back of my eyelids and this is what was there. I painted it quick before it vapourized....so I guess I pulled it out of "thin air". I should fix it and color the windows but I like the play of whites against the linked darks so this is what you get. I will paint it again but this is the idea and I like the loososity factor. I will also cook up a story for the half dozen charitable souls who claim to enjoy them. In conclusion, while P.A. remains an item on the bucket list, the best I can come up with is T.A.

OMG Ron! THis is wonderful. I love the car on top of the bus..cracks me up, but I really like the barrels int he trunk. We tend to forget hoe huge those trunks were - you could haul furniture in them...

Thanks, N.N., I have no idea how it got up there, even though I made the whole thing up...
