"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."

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!"

"On one of my art outings, I happened to find this guy standing
under a sign for a local pet store. He stood there for a long time
grooming his little goatee. I thought his heart tattoo added to his
"pet" character. To me it was just one of those funny moments."
