En Plein Air: Before Christmas (Oil, 12 x 9)
It was cloudy today. I pulled my kit down Greenway North in Forest Hills Gardens when I noticed a red car at the end of the line of parked cars along a narrow side street. At the same time, something else caught my eyes. The patches of green grass on the sidewalk, the light-colored sycamore trees against the red-brownish bare boughs, yellow leaves. etc., all reminded me that Christmas was around the corner. I immediately stopped and set up on the street corner to paint the scene.
