Really wanted to paint this for days. Had to run errands and attend a few meetings but kept thinking about what I wanted to paint. I compose paintings in my head all the time. When I got to actually paint I tinted my ground, in this case canvas, with gold paint for a change. I did a couple of quick gel pen sketches in my sketchbook and dove in. I didn't want everything lined up like ducks in a row so I kept thinking "Variation" in size, shapes, color and direction. This kind of painting is very spontaneous but there is a lot of thinking going on before anything begins. It's really fun to see your interpretation appear on canvas. I am taking this painting to Brath & Hughes Fine Art, LLC - Gallery today and if accepted you can see it "LIVE" during their February featured group exhibit "Food & Fruit".

Spent many hours as a kid attending and working Farmer's Market at Broad Street in Harrisburg, Lemoyne Farmers Market in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania. I remember using dry measure baskets and crates like pint, quart, 1/4, 1/2 and whole pecks, 1/2 and whole bushel baskets and bean hampers. Many of the patrons brought "Market Baskets" along to carry their groceries home.

This is my new painting of the "Friends Meeting House" in York, Pennsylvania. I've been painting with sticks, cards, brushes and even my fingers, now I added a "sponge". I'm looking for variation in mark making while having fun at the same time. You can see this painting and more in the York Art Association Gallery Group Exhibit at the Off Center Grill in the Yorktowne Inn in York, Pennsyvlania starting January 26.
