Little Owl Cafe - in the news!

Not my painting, but the restaurant itself has been in the news a lot lately for its great burgers. The slow economy seems to have made the burger quite the popular menu item for many restaurants.  So how do I get my painting to get as much press/media attention?! Here's a mention in the NY Times: click here. I saw one elsewhere, too, but can't remember where at the moment... Little Owl Cafe, Greenwich Village, oil on panel, 9 x 12 in.

Urban Night Scene - a first!

Thanks to a recent commission, I had the opportunity to paint a night scene of a West Village bar in NYC.  It's a small painting, and I did a lot of glazing using an alkyd medium (partly also to speed up drying time since the commission had a deadline).  Glazing is basically a technique where you apply multiple transparent layers, which I found was a wonderful way to develop the "glow" of lights in an otherwise dark scene. I worked with the client to develop the composition from the beginning, and along the way - which resulted in the addition of the four figures towards the end. See how the painting came about in "Works in Progress." village-tavern-700
