En Plein Air: Before the Business Hours (Oil, 9 x 12)
I knew I was a little late this morning. I meant to paint the scene maybe a half hour earlier so that there would be only a slit of sunshine on the awning. It was the intersection of Austin St. and 72nd Ave. I was first impressed by the orange color of the awning in the morning sun. It was was a restaurant named "Twist and Mash'd". Down the road was a new "Toys R Us" store which would soon have a grand opening.
