Framed "Red, White, and Blue"

I decided to paint in Newburyport, one of my favorite nearby places. It's a traditional seafaring town, with gorgeous sea-captain homes lining High Street and more. It's also become a tourist attraction and a popular place to live. Click the link on Newburyport for pictures. I set up in the town square, a very lively place. All around me were interesting storefronts, people, flowerboxes. What did I land on as what I wanted to paint? The roof of the Maritine museum with its flag against the dramatic clouds. The title works on two levels - the obvious, plus the building colors. I think I love roofs. And flags.
