18"h x 24"w Oil on Canvas
I painted this one standing at the edge of the waterfront "boardwalk". Restaurants and shops line the walkway.
People talked to me every day. Most wanted to know how long it took to paint a painting. Many wanted to know where the nearest restrooms were.
A large family of Russian immigrants stopped one day. One of the adult men asked
how long it took to finish a painting. I told him a month or so. Then the
elder papa continued the questioning, but he only spoke Russian, so one of
his sons, I assume, translated. He went right down the line: How many
paintings each month, how many hours each day, how many days a week do I
work, what is the gallery commission, etc. When it appeared to him that I
actually worked for a living, he nodded his approval and the family
went happily on.
