A Chat in the Fleamarket

In the morning it was a cloudy day, but by afternoon it became bright and sunny. I knew I would enjoy my visit to the Jamestown Village Vintage Fleamarket in Old Town Tustin. It is the joy of strolling alone in such places. I throughly enjoyed window shopping the antique shops and walking around among the people in the flea market. It seemed that these people in my painting met after a long time, had lots to catch up and had a gr8 time chatting!
This is 60x20 inches, oil on canvas panel, using all palette knife. The challenge for me here was people and simplifying.
C&C always appreciated.

wondefull. That's very large. I'd love to see a close up of the knife work.

Thanks Dwayne and Marion.
I am sorry there's a typo in the size. It is 16x20 inches.
Here are couple detail snippets Marion:

What a lively, upbeat painting! I can just feel the excitement of the people enjoying their day. (Nice owl in your other thread too!)

I love browsing flea markets too; you've captured the feeling of a bright sunny day very well.
