A Local Favorite

This is the East Boothbay General Store, owned by friends Liz and Dom.  It's the best place on the peninsula to have a pizza or grab a great sandwich.  I painted it quite a few years back, and you can probably tell the change in my style since then.  Also, Liz and Dom have spruced up the place with flowers and plants that the old owner didn't care about.  Still, it is a pretty good building portrait. 

 In this case drawing skills are very important.   All the angles and perspective problems were a challenge.  Still, it's fun to document the most popular sites in our small village.  I guess I'm getting a bit nostalgic about nearing the completion of another summer in this quaint and special place.
