Since I’ve sworn off politics, I’ve found that it had been a huge time suck in my life. I spent way too much time checking in on Huffpost, Politics Daily, Politico and the like when I could have been doing something more productive—like plucking my eyebrows or flossing my teeth.
That being said, since I have more time on my hands now, I had no excuse not to do another entry for the Virtual Paintout for January, located in lovely Corsica this month.
Ever since I’ve been doing these I thought it would be fun to paint people waiting at a bus stop and was always on the lookout for some interesting characters. I happened upon a couple of ladies at a bus shelter at 10 Cours Napoleon, Ajaccio, Corsica and although I’m sure I haven’t done them justice, at least I’ve gotten my bus stop fixation out my system for now. haha

Maybe they’re on the way to the Boulevard Paoli to meet that sassy woman you captured looking in the shop windows.
I have such fun looking at these!
This is fun – I was actually looking for people in Corsica, but I didn’t find any!
I know how you feel about poitics. I used to compulsively search the same sites you mention, and lately I seem to havelost interest.
Thank you so much for your comment! I love the paintings you’ve done for the Virtual Paintout. Yes, it takes a lot of “driving” around on street view to come up with interesting folks to paint. That’s why I mainly stick to the city streets–that, and the fact that I’m a highly UN-qualified landscape painter! 🙂
As for politics—meh. It’s not worth the raise in my blood pressure at this point. Thanks for stopping by.
