|Saturday Morning, Toy Store|
oil on panel, 9 x 12
As a novelty, I was asked if I would paint 'en plein air' in front of Kingston Frameworks for a few hours. I was happy to oblige. They had set up a tent for me so I didn't have to sit in the broiling sun; nice because Ontario has been HOT HOT HOT this summer!

The view of the toy shop across the street caught my attention...on the sidewalk children participated in activities in front of the toy store, I think they even served a children's breakfast. I wasn't the least bit surprised to spy several 'Elsa's' from the movie Frozen among them:) The festive atmosphere and primary colours were fun to do in this genre scene. "What is genre?" - ordinary people doing ordinary things
