A Better Way to Shop



Everyday Matters number 276 was to draw your grocery store. 
I could have drawn the supermarket but  this 'Ape' van piled high with fruit and vegetables was more attractive.  There are lots of these mobile shops here, selling everything and anything, sometimes they cruise the streets shouting their wares or like this one park on the corner and wait for the customers to stop.   I have seen some of these vehicles piled up to twice their size and I often wonder why they don't topple over.
This  man's tomatoes were very good by the way!

This is beautiful! I love how "soft" it looks and feels!

That's a fun little van! (and a great drawing ^^). You have so many fantastic drawings and paintings on this blog page - I've just spent some time admiring your older posts!
Enjoyed them all, with a special love for the manatee (so soft and sweet for a big animal!), and your gorgeous painting of "Another era" - dreamy!

Cute vehicle - this is so well drawn too. I'm glad you didn't choose the supermarket.

Wonderfully done! Wish we had these types of stores in NH.

Oh, this is way more fun than a real grocery store. It's wonderful!

This reminds me of living in Indonesia, when vehicles were loaded far in excess of their capacity .... and motorbikes - it was common to see mum, dad and up the 3 children on the back of a motorbike! Lovely drawing!

A wonderful grocery shop ! a lovely slice of your life that is so foreign to living in a big city.

I just love that, the drawing is great... and just the thought to buy your groceries that way is so neat (I love markets and smaller shops). Well done.

This is a lovely sketch, and as Alissa says, you captures a small piece of your life in Sicily.

I love the little nuances about different cultures that I pick up in our group. This is a perfect example. And it is so well done!

This is a beautiful drawing - almost, but not quite whimsical - love the purple vs. the green.
