Humarock study( WIP) 8"x8"Oil on panel

I have a commission to paint a scene from the Humarock area of Marshfield- but in a whimsical style. I took some reference photos and did some thumbnails and came up with this. Its challenging to depart from what's real while still retaining its special uniqueness of place.I am planning to do a few studies of the area and then choose one to do a finished 36" square canvas for my client.
On another note-
I made a smoothie for breakfast this morning- look at my refuse!


Later in the day- I went to TAR-JAY --and the starbucks in it were giving out these free little cappacino drinks
 
Like  giant cherry on top?
I remember when I had to go to Cambridge to get Starbucks and it was SO cool- now it's in Target. Might as well be Dunkin Donuts!
