This year I decided to do a small painting of the salon where I get my hair cut as a gift to the owner, Heike. I've been going there for close to a year and thought it would be a fun Christmas gift for her. Of course I had this idea the other day and with all the time I spent getting ready for the show this past weekend, so I really only had yesterday or today to paint it. Wouldn't you know it was raining. yesterday. lol So I sat in my car in the parking lot across the street from the shop, using the windshield wipers from time to time. The shop was closed but a car pulled up in front and who got out but Heike. Luckily she didn't see me as she dashed into the shop and out again. I sat there in the rain (and thunder at times) to finish this piece. I changed the scene a bit adding flowers in the pots by the door and some shadows even though it was raining. I thought sunshine would be a little better.
I did this as a 5 x 7 size and I will bring it to her tomorrow when I go to have my hair done.
