Back in the studio today after a weekend of watching football and dealing with icy, snowy weather, very unusual in this part of the country (Birmingham). Can't wait for warm weather to return.
I do a lot of paintings in the food and wine genre- chefs, waiters, sidewalk cafes, etc. This one is small (5"x6"). Small paintings are great fun, allowing for quick, expressive brushstrokes. In this case, keeping it loose and not overly defined helps to suggest movement.
