Painting at the Town Center: "Uncle Julio's and Mighty Fine"

The afternoon was spent on a shady spot on the sidewalk of the Reston Town Center (Reston, VA) painting Uncle Julio's and the Jackson's sign and corner.  Lots of company ... even though this is a little quieter block than the rest of the area.  I guess not everyone agreed. Beautiful day.

Two of my previous Reston Town Center plein air paintings are part of my "Serendipity" solo show at the Great Falls Library, 9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, VA.  See them in Great Falls (during normal library hours) or online on my web site.
