Day 290: Nasturtium, the shop
Around the corner from Harbor Village lies the little gift shop called Nasturtium, Art of Living. The exterior walls of this charming tourist shop have bright, large nasturtium leaves and flowers painted on them. It's a little over the top and this painting, which may appear exaggerated isn't really. The shop carries souvenir stuff, candles, local artwork and odds and ends that nobody really needs, but seem ideal for this store. I've tried painting this shop several times. It's challenging to capture. Immediately to its left is a blue, blue, blue building. That is what really caught my eye this morning as our painting group spread out looking for a subject. The weather was mild and clear and no winds disturbed our attention.
