Late afternoon, Whole Foods

“Bursting with Spring”
9 x 6" watercolor

Whole Foods is a market I like to shop more than I care to paint. However, the beautiful display of tulips and other spring-blooming flowers made this scene irresistible. The sign at the top of the building, I have skewed, but what the heck — this is not an architectural rendering! Wish the customers with their carts didn’t move so fast, but I’ve done my best to capture one of them here. Two commissioned paintings took me to Raleigh last Saturday. I squeezed this one in on a side-visit to Quail Ridge Books, in the same center as this market. What a glorious day it was for plein air painting!
