Another day out in Phoenix AZ, in the Historic House area. A pleasant 70 degrees and lots of subjects to paint.

Nice fast work. I am giving plein air a thought, too. Your enthusiasm is spilling over, Brian! 👍🏼

Thanks everyone.
There's a story to go along with this.

The area we chose to paint is a historic district of Phoenix When I rolled up outside this house the owner was working in the garden and I told him what I was doing and got his permission to paint his house.
Another painter Kimberley found another house and asked the owner if it was OK. She was granted permission.

After a couple of minutes when she was all set up the neighbor came out and started telling Kimberley she had no right to be there and she better move if she didn't want to get arrested!!
Kimberley politely said that the sidewalk she was on was public property.

The neighbor went storming off. Several minutes later she came put again and turned on the lawn sprinklers so Kimberley got drenched!


Kimberley quickly moved to the other side of her parked car and carried on painting!!


The joys of Plein Aire!!

crazy, why didn't the lady just say sorry she has changed her mind, please don't paint my house. I have doubt Kimberley would have happily chosen another subject. :crazy2:

Rather mean spirited if you ask me, especially after she´d given her approval. Yep... some days are just like that.
Good on Kimberley for just moving behind her car and continuing on.  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

It must have come across wrong, the person who owned the house said OK, it was the NEIGHBOR who turned the sprinklers on.

Aloha, Brian,
I love what you’re doing!  :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:
Especially the Phoenix house, it’s ‘clean’ as Dennis said.  What kind of set up are you using? Something pretty portable? ~Liz

Your plein air paintings are great Brian. Some people are so cranky. I feel bad for her neighbors.
