"This is Main Street?"

10x8 Acrylic 

This month's Virtual Paintout was on the beautiful Island of Prince Edward, Canada
The location was coming off a small bridge on Main Street.  Of all the Main Streets in this world, this has got to be the most unique!  From what I saw "walking" by streetview via google maps there are many lovely farms on the water....how cool would that be?  go feed the chickens before taking a sail!

O.k. so now to the painting itself.  The colors were pretty true except for a little artistic licence with the blue grass.  Those blue clouds were very stormy, which made that green stand out even more so.
As usual I am posting on the last day of this challenge.  Next month starts a new location...hopefully it won't take me that long finding a spot to paint!
