I was so excited about the results of bowl games yesterday that I couldn't sleep last night! Well, it's true... but it's also an excuse for posting a painting I actually did a couple of years ago. The other excuse is that I spent all day packing away Christmas decorations, dismantling mantles, and sweeping up pine needles. I hurried with these chores, but somehow the day got away from me and there was no time left for painting.
This painting was painted (roughly) from a friend's photograph taken in a hotel lounge somewhere in Toronto, Canada. I completed a series of paintings from her "bar top" photos, and from time to time, still paint from these awesome references. This one is on a wrapped canvas so the painting actually continues around the side for 2". It measures 18" x 18", and is still one of my favorites.
All these days off for the holidays, and now it's the weekend! Hope yours is great!
