As you can see, I have painted another scene inspired by our local farmers' market. I am enjoying exploring these compositions with watercolor paint, trying to capture the festive arrays that the sellers display. Of course, there is so much happening in each scene that I end up editing out a good deal in an attempt to get to the essence of what attracted me to the composition in the first place. In this case, it was the variety of blooms punctuated by the three white containers that provided a frame for the lettuce seller in the background. I have purchased an awful lot of lettuce from him through the years. It's a taste of summertime.
