A common scene, but painted with great conceptualization, and strong drawing and painting skills. I like the realistic choice of colors and the outfits tells a story of a warm-weather setting, like a tropical town. High on substance .

I like all the action going on in this piece. Though I don't get the bus as being the central subject it is evident that it is involved with the flow of things..people look to be the central subject here. I like the impressionistic feel to all..the car is cool. Nice work!

Comment from Life is but a dream.


Pamela, when did you draw this IT IS GRRRREAT?

I really like the folksy style here,the moment caught, the flow and ebb of humanity. I don't see the bus as the main focal point or the small dots of people in the back. It is the prominence of people in the foreground, colourful, busy, and I can see one fellow checking out some good looking woman who is out of the frame.

There is story, there is colour, the drawing is quirky and it all fits...I don't even mind the brown car that is askew in dimensional drawing.

    Thank you, Life for your nice review. This was done my first year in 1987. It was on the cover of a magazine in 2001. I guess there is something about it. I know it is primitive. Thanks again. But, now I have to figure out what you mean about the car. Isn?t it just in traffic following the bus?

    LOL you are sweet. That car, to me, looks like it has a lean to it....to the right, doesn't it look like that to you. It really doesn't matter much and the lean gives this piece a playful feel.

Comment from Neilnap773


probably my favourite of your paintings as there appears to be a structure and meaning to this presentation and particularly like the palette and your quirky composition

An interesting painting showing a slice of our daily life. There is a lot to see in this pleasant painting. The colours are natural and there is balance. Thanks for sharing!

I Really like this, love all the different colors and the action depicted. This is a very interesting piece. Can almost here the noise of the traffic and the sounds of people's voices as they are making it through their day. Great work!!
