Break Time


Going with the same theme of Cafe Du Monde this is a 9x12 oil on board, I wonder what he is reaching for in his pocket? Hopefully some chewing gum! Loose brush strokes and buttery oil paint make a great combination to complete the figurative paintings that I thrive on. I hope you enjoy this new piece. It is available at Renaissance Gallery. c2010

Nancy, He's probably reaching for a check so he can purchase this painting. It's great! Your brush strokes and colours are beautiful.

Oh Vern, don't I wish!! LOL thanks a bunch for your comment and stopping by. "Ain't it grand to push the paint around?"
