State St at Pleasant St, Oil, 14" x 24" Richard Burke Jones
Free Shipping. Yes it was cold particularly on Friday evening when it hailed, then rained and finally a big blow came through Essex St. Nonetheless, it was a joyful challenge to try to capture the buildings, the light and the ever present strollers who were so excited to be ‘downtown’! Comments ranged from ‘too cold sir to be doing that’ to ‘nice!’ I don’t think I will ever tired of painting downtown Newburyport. It’s kinda funny, you start somewhat troubled to design and lay-in the scene but gradually let go of those concerns and reach almost a still point as the painting comes together. Peace.
