Watercolor on cold-pressed paper. Original is approximately 10. × 14 inches.

The alley is about a block east of <a href="http://www.bookbin.com/">The Book Bin</a> on Court Street, Salem, Oregon. My husband and I refer to this as the alley with the archway to nowhere because of the freestanding brick archway leading to more alley.

I had taken photos of the alley earlier, but the young woman photographing the plumbing caught my eye. It was only after I’d snapped the shot that I noticed the gentleman watching her curiously.

    You’ve been one busy lady! Once again, great work, making good use of light & depth. Even more so, the characters in your image are telling such a story! Love it!

  • Thank you! I’m having fun with street scenes.

    Superbly done Jenny. Shame there isn’t a group dedicated to painted street scenes, I’ve often thought. Interesting painting.

  • Maybe I should talk someone into starting such a group. They aren’t the only thing I want to paint, but I’ve always been drawn to them.
