Lunch at Angel Tube Stop
It has been busy, busy, busy with the kids out of school for summer. Fun, but, busy with little time to paint, much less keep up with all of the business side promoting one's art.
Here is number 11 in the Cafe Series. I am really liking the color mingling going on in the right corner of the picture. By doing this series, I am getting less afraid of painting crowds of people. The photo that inspired this painting is from 2001. I have stacks of photos of cafe scenes, street scenes and crowds of people that I have been saving for the day I had the courage to paint them.
I will mention that I have been frustrated with the quality of my images on the computer. I am using the same camera, but, I switched to a Mac in December. I feel like iPhoto is not keeping accurate color or sharpness that is the actual photo. When I look at my posts before December, I feel that the quality of the pictures is so much closer to the real life image. Does anyone have thoughts or advice on this?
Stay cool and please check back to see a new subject I just finished painting - it is NOT a cafe scene!
p.s. I am exhibiting in 2 shows right now: One Gallery and Manske Library. These are group shows and the collections are quiet interesting.
