Primary colors

Oil on canvas, 11" x 14"
In the old city of Quebec, any corner you turn may hold charming sights, like yellow houses with blue doors and baskets of red flowers.

On another note- things artists don't want to hear on the eve of their big one-person show:
- The economy is tanking.
- There's a hurricane due to land on the east coast on the day your work is due at the gallery, 300 miles away.
And if it's true that everything comes in threes, there may be one more surprise coming...

I LOVE this! I love paintings of blue doorways, and shutters. These are sooo pretty! I want to go to Quebec and paint them, maybe a bit easier than going to France, although I'd like to go there too.

What a great moment you've captured. I love the figures reading the menu. The sunlight on that yellow wall is stunning!

You are an amazingly brilliant Artist kathy. All your paintings are first class, but I have`to make a comment on this one because as soon as I opened my email up this morning, it hit me. Beautiful painting and colour. I also like the title, well done Kathy and all the best.
