Madonna on Dorchester Street 24"x30"
While looking around trying to determine what to paint, I was considering the usual, all those buildings that seem to be unique to the Boston area that house people and businesses. I was parked in front of Marion Manor, a nursing facility in South Boston and Ros had already set up down the street working on a street view. I didn't think I would see anything from that vantage point that I really wanted to paint that day when I noticed the statue of the Blessed Mother, a visual oasis with street signs and flowers around her and one of the buildings that I find so typical of the area. Here's my view.
