On The Emerald Edge - © Christopher Greco

8x10" oil on canvas panel. I found this shady spot high above the river . The ground was covered in a thick carpet of moss. The pools of light were jewel like, disguising the danger of the very high ridge and soft, loose ground cover,  right up to the edge.

Sunday In Chagrin Falls - © Christopher Greco

10x8" oil on canvas panel. After a quick lunch and a painting of Maddie we decided to head over to Chagrin Falls. We had coffee on the green then Kathi read her nook, Maddie napped in the sun and I was a great Sunday afternoon.

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?
