"The Banjo Player" Seattle city scenes, oil painting

A familiar scene down by Pike place Market in Seattle are the street musicians. I love to stop and listen.......and I have always wanted to go down with my guitar and try it but haven't worked up the courage yet........But I might have to pretty soon......

OOOO..so very nice! Colors...contrast...composition...all super. Reminds me of back eons ago when I would hang out at Jackson Square in New Orleans and just watch folks.
