"Noontime Activity" by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Pat Koscienski

"Noontime Activity"
9" x 12"
"Noontime Activity" was painted for Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout Challenge. Using Google Map Street View we were to tour through Mexico City and surrounding areas to find a scene to paint. This particular scene was from Victoria/Dolores, Cuauhtemoc, D.f., Mexico. The people in this scene just seemed to be on lunch, with packages in hand, food cart nearby, shops, and a flurry of activity. I couldn't resist the color of the building and the cart. If interested in purchasing or have any questions, contact Pat at To see more paintings by Pat Koscienski, both representational and abstract, view my website at:

This is great, Pat. Nice feel of activity, and gorgeous colors in this. I can see why you could not resist that cart - it really pulls it all together beautifully!

Pat, no matter the subject, you just nail it every time! This is wonderful. For some reason, I am reminded of Van Gogh. I think because he could paint in different styles and different subject matters as wonderfully as I see you doing. Just fabulous!

Thanks, Claire. Painting these are a lot different than painting plein air. There's a lot you can't see in the photos. But, they are so much fun.

Autumn, you are such a positive person and touch others with that great aura you have around you. Thank you for making my day.

Pat, I like your market painting you did a nice job with the figures.

Thanks, Phil, I sometimes wish I could get better photos from the street searches. Maybe that's what makes some of these "challenges". LOL
