This is a painting I started a long time ago (maybe 2 years?) - long enough that this view no longer exists for most people because there is a house in the way (the beginnings of the foundation are on the bottom right). I pulled it out the other day, looked at it and decided that there were just a couple of little things I needed to change- a few color/value adjustments- and now I'm fairly happy with it. It's a view of the Rhode Island statehouse in Providence from the East Side.

Oil on board, 8" x 8"
Ann and I went painting on Friday in Wickford, first at the town dock, which we eventually left due partly to the fact that a school bus full of kids pulled up (it's field trip time).
The same bus full of kids was scheduled to show up there, which in a way turned out to be a good thing, because there were several docents on hand dressed in their period outfits (don't say costumes!) and we ended up chatting with them and taking a few pictures.

Oil on canvas, 12" x 16"
JRS Fine Art, my Providence gallery of long standing and a fixture on Wickendon St., will be closing at the end of June. Jim just wants to have fun! So if there's a piece of art you've had you eye on, now would be the time to get it. Or just stop by to say goodbye.
