I'm finally back! It's been a long time since I finished a painting with so much going on at the end of the school year and having a new puppy! Life's great, but I sure miss the painting. This painting came from an image I took in Feb. at the Starbuck's at beautiful Rosemary Beach. Carole and I were sitting in a little vignette area enjoying our lattes, and I loved the comfortable look of this man reading the paper. I'm intrigued by the light of the outside coming in casting more cooler tones of light along with the warmer-toned lighting of the incandescent lighting in Starbuck's. I love working both kinds of lighting to paint this scene. I wanna be there!
