Just back from a fabulous relaxing weekend with friends in Jacksonville Beach and looking forward to getting my photos onto the computer to see all my new reference photos and really take a closer look to see what I have to work with.
When you get a chance to relax and be quiet for a bit , have lunch with a friend , take a walk and really look around you there is such a joy and excitement in the little things around you that you never saw before. I have lived in New york City for 13 years now and have walked past this restaurant numerous times however on this particular day while looking for a place to have lunch with a friend it really popped out. The umbrellas, the people , the colors, the movement of the waiters , the tables and chairs, the light and shadows , all of it. This painting is a result of that days adventure and I hope you enjoy seeing it and look around your world a titch differently today as a result.
