Oddly enough I understood what she meant.
So... this painting is Fayetteville-esque.
If you've ever lived in or loved my city, you get it.
What makes it Fayetteville-esque?
... There's Old Main in the background.
... The trees from the University lawns are in their autumn colors.
... That must be a Razorback license plate on the blue car.
... Of course, there's not an empty parking space anywhere.
... And... there are all the businesses that make Dickson Street... Dickson Street...
I put things into this painting that make it fun.
I spy... my red VW bug! the wheel of my husband's Harley! Melanie's SUV, DJ's mustang!
I think I spy... Are those initials in the reflection of a window? Do those shutters look like an my own initials? And is that a letter on the orange building? Is that a name on the green car's license plate? How about on the red car's license?
Could I also spy... Are those scribbles on the white sign, or does it have a message? Is that a blur, or does it say something on the red dot sign?
Fun! Fun!! Fun!!!
She'll get to see it tomorrow morning! (along with my painting partners who want to be there.) I hope she thinks it's "Fayetteville-esque!"
I was pretty proud to finish this one.
With the frame, the bug won't hold much more. :)
