Pleasant Street

The other day I mentioned that I had been to Adams.  Here's the first of another series of paintings focusing on the town of Adams.  I like the older buildings and neighborhoods there.  This painting depicts Pleasant Street.  I wonder if there's an Easy Street in Adams.

I've been reading a book on the Spanish painter Antonio Lopez Garcia, who has painted cityscapes of Madrid.  He takes years to complete a cityscape leading him to strip out all "ephemera as cars and people."  I can't paint at such a slow pace, but I do tend to leave out people, but not cars.  Cars keep still longer than people.
