"City Sidewalks" oil 8 x 6

The November challenge for Girls Just Wanna Paint is "magical".  I love this time of year, just walking through downtown streets puts a lift in my step as I pass the glowing, festive windows.  Interestingly for me, they never make me want to shop.  I'm just not a shopper, more of an all-year-collector which I then share.  I enjoy the warmth, the glow, the shine, the sparkle, and the desire to spend more time with friends locally and farther away.

See the rest of Girls ... entries here, and as always, thanks for looking. 

And, here's a link to City Sidewalks, Busy Sidewalks (Silver Bells) with Bob Hope, for your listening pleasure.


  1. Oh that street lamp is just perfection and plays off the Christmas window beautifully. Makes me in a holiday mood!

  2. Wow, this is a fabulous painting. I am somewhat curious about the blue objects in the background on either side of the lamp. Please tell what they are.

  3. Thanks, Jerry. Good question. The blue objects behind the lamp are actually the entry way to a closed business across the street from the foreground window. I may tweak a little to clarify that confusion.
