How to rid yourself of that pesky and dangerous traffic

You have parked on a country road and have set up your easel for a few hours of uninterrupted painting. What to do about the occasional car, school bus, ambulance, big rig, tractor, combine, police or fire vehicles, etc.? Marco knows what to do!

Marco:I hope your traffic sign paraphernalia wasn't "liberated" from a construction site! I must admit, however, that I have, upon occasion, "liberated" traffic cones for my drawing classes!

Teri: I figured that you have been thrown off enough properties and roads for Marco's brilliant, if not lawful, set up to work for you.

Very educational. Now, what do you do to stop people from noticing you snapping photos of them?

This is an example of a great mind at work. All the good views are from the middle of the road. We should be able to get painter's license plates that force all cars behind and in front to stop when we stop and wait til we are done.

Nava: I use to have a Nikon 35mm camera. I purchased a fake telephoto lens with an opening in the side that housed a built in mirror (like a periscope). You would point your lens away from your subject (at a right or 90 degree angle) and take their picture! They hadn't a clue! Sneaky!

Damn right, Onpainting! And all military personnel should salute us and the state of Hawaii should be ceded to us for plein air R @ R!! I know...let's get a state proposition on the ballot. We can call it "Proposition 13- Getting what california artists are due".
