Allen Street and Blurry Vision


Did this plein air piece this evening just before dark. It's our view looking down the street. It was just getting dark as I finished this one up. I was putting some gear in my backpack and I heard something sound like it hit our sidewalk. I stood up and took a step and knew instantly what it was. My glasses were under my foot. Below is a pic after I brought them in. I actually bent the frames back to almost normal without breaking them, although I don't think they'll take much more. The right lens cracked at the outer edge, and both lens are pretty scratched up. So...
It's time to sell some art! Daddy needs a new pair of glasses!




In case you're wondering why I paint without my glasses on...They tint in sunlight, and when that happens I can't see all the colors, so I take them off. Next pair are not going to be transitions.
