Here I am, in Apalachicola, Florida.  Last night we had a terrific storm; lightning, high winds and downpours.  The sun came out this morning, but the wind persisted, so I was once again forced to paint in my room here at Sportsmans Lodge. 

I looked through my photos of this fall and found one of a famous bakery/restaurant on the Hill, the Italian section of St. Louis.  Amighetti's is a well known landmark destination in a section of town where Yogi Berra was born, as well as Joe Garagiola.   The green awning and the building across the street with its cupola appealed to me, so I decided to paint that famous corner.

Take your camera with you to your favorite section of your hometown, and photograph the buildings there with an eye for the composition.
