Go Dog Go

After a week's vacation, I'm now painting memories. Over the 4th of July holiday I spent some time in the small beach town of Ocean Shores on the Washington State Coast. Several mornings we were up early and pedaled our bicycles five miles into town and bought coffee at this little road-side coffe stand. It is called Go Dog Go because they also sell gourmet hot dogs. It was a delightful way to start the day. This little oil painting is 5x7 inches on panel. I was struck by the wonderful light and shadows on the side of the building.

great shadow on the building and I like the way you caught the shifting color on the green bushes

Thank you, Sandra. I don't usually paint buildings, but this one was fun. I'm glad you like it!
