=Market Day 20 x 24 inches Oil on canvas
In 2004 the five children and I traveled to Poland for a six month home school field trip/adventure.
This small oil painting is a reflection of my memories of the outdoor market a few blocks from our flat. We spoke very little Popolsku and what we spoke we spoke poorly. The shop keepers and vendors spoke even less English. We had a grand time getting to know each other with our mutual attempts at foreign language and arm waving, laughter, and picture drawing.
Much love passes through eyes and smiles and the occasional hug.
