Cafe Sol - SOLD!

6"x8" oil on Belgian linen mounted on archival board

Summer sun, shade under a big umbrella, dining 'al fresco'

Mango lemonade, iced mocha, what'll you have?

This is where I'll be painting on Friday, July 6th, late afternoon, Cafe Sol on Main Street in Niantic, CT. Today I just wanted to try a little 'something/study' from notes and memory. Who knows what I'll find tomorrow - there will be a band, and it's looking like quite a crowd will be out and about for Opsail2012CT! So much happening at McCooks Beach with 24 ships arriving out in the Bay!! Am I excited?? You betcha!!

The shadowed figures against the sunny wall and foreground, really difficult to pull off, but you managed it triumphantly! A really nice painting Roxanne.
