Tivoli, Chattanooga 074

I took this picture earlier this year when Jules and I stopped on one of our many journeys to Paris. We stopped at the local Starbucks, and there it was. The lighting was perfect, which hardly every happens when you stumble upon a piece like this. Usually I have to study it for a day to see when the sun hits it the way I like. Anyway, the larger pieces take a while to finish, and these last 2 have killed me. This is "that time of year" at school, the mad dash to the end... then, VACATION! Or as I call it, time to work. I get to wake up everyday and paint! I plan on participating in a series of workshops with Millie Gosch and a small group, and I hope I can coerce Martin to come out and paint as well. Any of the rest of you plein air peeps out there who want to come Gay way, let me know!
