Red Truck, Rain, and Coffee

6x6 oil on board Sold
Pouring rain can't stop the diehards who must have their Tims coffee fix. This scene is from Tim Hortons in Dundas Ontario.

Love it! Has Tim Horton's seen any of your paintings?

Kim Blair said...

I was wondering the same thing. Your Tim paintings would certainly make wonderful corporate gifts for their company...
Hmmmm...

I love all those warm reds and yellows against the blues! Your rainy day paintings are always a treat.

Another Tim Hortons. You must hang out there a lot! Ha, ha.. I really like how you rendered the highlights in the reflections. Juicy! If it were me, I'd go after those coffee addicts for sales!

Ah, pure vintage Catherine style! Once again, I love the jewel-like darks, the flickering lights, the traffic and the rain and the multiple reflections!

Catherine I haven't checked in for awhile..what I really like about this painting is your composition- ie the way you used colour and brushwork to keep the eye in the painting. That red truck could easily have led the eye right out.even the angle of the writing balances the work--you also seem to know where to leave quiet passages -enhancing your lively brushwork and colour balance.

I am feeling a little like I the rest of the world has something that I don't. Why can't I have a cup of their fantastic coffee? Why is it so great? Why do I have to drink second rate coffee when all of Canada has something better???


PS Love the painting!
