In 1992 I was painting in Spanish Village, located at Balboa Park in San Diego, CA and loved the purple door on this particular gallery. In 2009 I was there again and painted the same view but the door was then painted orange! Then in 2013 I was visiting this same village and found that orange door had changed to yellow! The building is the same color and full of charm to be attractive for tourist who come through this area. So, this is what happens, I painted the place and now, look what happened! It is good to have pics to share, but the one with the purple door is not a digital so it (first pic here) doesn’t look good here. Most of the viewers of this particular scene that I have now painted three different times remark how they like the way I did the tiles on the ground! That is the way I like to paint, making suggestions and not reporting facts and making things look so real and photographic.
