FIELD NOTES:
Unbeknownst to me, when I set up to paint on that empty street, I was in A Neighborhood. First came four kids on bikes, circling around. "What are you doing?" "Why?" "Can I see?" Next, a little girl holding the hand of her toddler sister. "Mama wants to know what you're painting." Then the homeowner stepped out on the porch, called out greetings, settled in on the glider and began a steady commentary on the house's exterior maintenaince. Finally an shiny orange '70's Camaro crept by then stopped. The driver leaned over and rolled down the passenger window. "Do you need a ride or something? Are you OK?" I capped off the afternoon by taking up the homeowner's offer to tour the religious and cat themed grottoes in the side yard.
