May I Start, May I Finish. Pochade painting of Kitchen Street.

The sign reads...Chadwicks Hardware Store, 1916. Purveyors of Domestic Hardware, Cleaning Materials, Ironmongery, Fastenings Glues and Abrasives. We seem to be losing to many of these old red brick buildings, their hearts beat in a different time, caught in between conversion or demolition. It's a good feeling to come across an old Ironmongers or Sail-makers, trades that are still touching the past with their fingertips.

I really am glad to see that you are painting again. Must mean you are feeling better. I love this one. The colors and composition are lovely.
