Busy Night

8 x 8 Oil on Gessobord


This waiter was trying to make his way through the crowded restaurant carrying two cups of coffee without a tray.  He obviously had practiced this, however, I wondered at the time how much coffee remained in the cups.  He had this determined look on his face.  I painted this figure and was pleased with the results, but was not at all happy with the background.  After much experimenting, I found a technique (if you could call it that) that I was really happy with.  I have to admit, I love to play around and discover new and exciting things.  That's what it's all about...in everything we do.  Will it work again??  Who knows!  One can only hope :-)
