“Boston’s Beacon Street”
My first (of hopefully many) works of the Boston which I love to visit due to its history, character, and chowdah!
After letting Woody run around Boston Common I decided this view of Boston’s historic residences looking west down Beacon with the Common on the left (south side) was certainly worthy of painting. It includes: a mother and son walking, snowplow, postal truck, the Somerset Club, my car, and a man walking his, yes… Boston Terrier ;)
Interesting note: to the left of the view resides a memorial to Col. Robert Shaw and the all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry dramatized in the movie “Glory.”
Details. And yes that’s a, wait for it… Boston Terrier (at right) :
