Summerfest the opening day...Belaires playing the blues.

Why is it always 8 PM when I notice I did not do my photo of the day??? Just playing around again with harsh light and shadows. I am dieting so maybe some day I will be a mere shadow of myself.

Today was the last day of my split personality painter|photographer. I participated all week in the Cedarburg plein air competition. I am sure the results will be uneventful, seeing what other painters were accomplishing, but it was a good diversion. Painting is a bit like riding a bike, you never forget, but boy was my bike RUSTY. These were my two entries.

Painted today, dodging raindrops, trying to see clearly in fog, and with a chill off the river, yet it was fun. I am never satisfied with my work but I like the process.
This theater has been calling me all week while I am in Cedarburg painting, Art Deco architecture always reminds me of Edward Hopper, especially his painting of the blonde leaning against the wall in a theater like this.
