A little local scene.....this is the window at Benson's, a wonderful homemade ice cream place in West Boxford, Massachusetts. A long time local tradition - still owned by the same family (maybe third generation?) - they make all their own ice cream, using local fruit when in season. It is amazing stuff!
I paint a lot of little paintings of Bensons because it is such a popular spot that many people seem to want a little piece of it that they can hold on to. Many of these paintings have gone out of town to locals who have moved away, or sent to family members who have happy childhood memories of going there. So while it may seem repetitious, I will keep on doing these little paintings of Bensons as long as there are still people who feel such a connection to the place and want something to remember it by.
