Parking Tree, 6x6

"Parking Tree" 6x6" Pastel on sanded paper

"Parking Tree"....reminds me of the lyrics in Joni Mitchell's song "Big Yellow Taxi"......... They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot...ooooohhhh, park, park, park, park!

A couple of weekends ago, my daughter went skating and while I didn't want to drive all the way back home just to return in a couple of hours, I decided to spend my waiting time painting plein air. So I stayed at Skateworld's "most famous" parking lot and turned on my car radio, set up shop, and painted this little common scene. Just as I was finishing up, my car battery decided to give up and die on me. Next time, Joni, don't forget the iPod!
