"Early Birds"

8 x 10"
oil on masonite

I was up at the crack of dawn this morning - wanting to finish up this painting before the heat was on. These two were spotted at an air show at the Peachtree-Dekalb Airport - they claimed their prime viewing spot early. About 3 hours early, which tickled me.

I thought this was very eye-catching. Then I read your comments about how this cute couple claimed their viewing seats early. I had to chuckle...(made me think of my parents, who always went to church early to claim their pew!!!)

Great painting! That bright red umbrella won me over in a heartbeat.

Loved your comments on the painting. Laughed out loud at them staking their claim 3 hours early. We are nothing if not passion!
