The Sum of the Whole

I just completed this painting of the Astoria Sunday Market where I am showing this summer. I did the painting hoping to show the overall "feel" of the market: the setting, the colors, the people and the activities. Often I find within the large composition - several small compositions that I like very much. So I am making details of these for several small prints of them. I find in paintings sometimes the sums are better than the whole. Or at least as good.
