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.
