A Summer Street -

Rocky River, Ohio, Daily Painting

8x10" oil on canvas panel.
I painted this from the shaded entry of the elementary school across the street from these homes.The parking lot next to the school was mostly empty and being late in the day no one was about. As I was nearing the end of this oil sketch a car pulled into the lot and parked. A woman in a bikini got out and with a spray bottle and a rag proceeded to wash all of her windows. There was a moment of distraction as there always is when anyone is nearby while I am working but I turned my easel and went back to my work. I finished my painting, packed up and drove home, all the time wondering if this was a scene from a Fellini movie or Candid Camera?
