Last Call for Corsica

I decided to do one final (yeah, I know, you’ve heard that one before) entry to the Virtual Paintout for January, located on the beautiful island of Corsica.

I wanted to have some fun with this one and not angst over it too much (yeah, sure, like that’s going to happen!) so I did this one rather quickly while my grandkids were here watching some cartoons and having their weekly dose of Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles.  (Am I a swell grandma or what?)

This one is 4 Boulevard Albert, Ajaccio, Southern Corsica.  There were no people around to include in the picture, so I naughtily put Mr. Peg Man from Google street view search in front of the house.  I thought he could be kind of like the Roaming Gnome in those travel ads.  Maybe I’ll include him in other paintings in the future–I might hide him like Waldo for people to find.  hee hee  So, click on the image to enlarge it and, by all means, click on the above link to view the many wonderful entries for this month.  What will February bring us for the new location?  Stay tuned….

Numero Dos: Virtual Paintout Mexico

The month of December is quickly winding down so I thought I would submit one more painting to the Virtual Paintout for Mexico. 

This painting is the Apatlaco, Iztacalco, D.f., area in Mexico City.  The street was an amazing feast for the eyes, with street vendors on both sides of it (and down the middle of it, too) along with shops of all kinds.  This shop was a “unisex” barbershop which was graced with a beautiful bouganvillea bush.
