Larry's Bar & Grill

"Wired for Sound"
oil on canvas - 6"x6"
contemporary figurative

"Today's painting is a young man with headphones walking past
"Larry's Bar & Grill". A bit of nostalgia for you. This is
probably the oldest hang out near the Ohio State Campus.
I remember going here in the late 60's. It was the place for
artists and cool hippies to sit and talk politics, play chess
and of course have a cold beer."

Self Portrait

"Self Portrait"
oil on canvas - 6"x6"
contemporary figurative

"Yep, a self portrait. Actually,I haven't done a self portrait since
the early 70's. So,this is me standing at a local coffee shop. Do we
want to get philosophical about it? Oh, why not. In this world today,
talking to people around the world through the internet, making friends
in distant places and all the time never actually seeing the real person...
I create my paintings, put them online and I say to myself, it is the
work that really matters."

outside the coffee shop the guy seated inside with his cup

"This piece could be a portrait of me walking into an expresso cafe,
(it isn't me, but could be). I do LOVE a good coffee and also enjoy
sitting in a cafe to sketch or work on my laptop, like I am sure many
of you do too."

"Red, White & Blue"
oil on canvas - 6"x6"
contemporary figurative

"The other day, around lunchtime, I noticed this young man who
worked in the red & white (a fast food place)standing outside
taking a break. The place seemed almost deserted except for him.
It was a painting waiting to happen. The stark red & white building,
a beautiful blue sky with one dark figure in a red hat."

"Today's piece is one of many scenes I see every day on the
street near the Ohio State Campus. I am sure you have you
noticed that nearly everyone you see walking are also talking
on their cell phones. It has become such a part of everyday
life that it is almost rare to see someone without it. "

"Back Street Grill"
oil on canvas - 8"x8"
contemporary figurative

"There is an area near downtown that is the location of large
indoor market and many little grills and restaurants. A lot of
people who work downtown will often frequent these places at lunchtime.
This painting is on one of the back streets that has access to
one of the grills. I really like the view of color and reflections
of the city in the windows.On this day I grabbed a bite of lunch
at the market, sat outside and did a little sketching."

Different Agendas

"Different Agendas"
oil on canvas - 8"x8"
contemporary figurative

"Today was another wonderful spring day. If I go downtown around
lunchtime...this is a typical view I get... The lunchtime rush.
People scurrying around, all with some sort of agenda, hence the
title. Here are two very different individuals that seem to be in
a hurry doing something? going somewhere?
When I do the studies for many of the people scenes I am always
making up a story in my head about them...it's so much fun!"
