This is a made up diner sign...out of my head. I used only orange, blue and white acrylic and painted it on paper. Don't you love painting screwball things like this sometimes... just for the fun of it?

My plein air friend Cathleen Rehfeld told me about Liz Steele who provides some really great drawing tutorials...you can find one HERE.

And .....here's a shot from the parking lot where we had lunch today....just so you know what kind of weather we're having.

Screwball subjects make for great paintings:)

Eye catching with the circle shape over the cup. Love orange and blue together. The gray stormy sky sure makes the red pop out.
