just hanging out and painting some of my favorite street scenes, like this one of Lincoln Road.

Val's Bars

This is one of the many bar scenes that I like to do, studies of life. This is a cool place in Boca Raton, Mizner Park (the pink city). It's known for being a singles place and just has the best layout for a painting. I have painted this place numerous times and never get tired of it.

This is an 12x16, oil on canvas. It is my daughter Angie, one of my favorite subjects to paint. I used to paint in a restaurant in Coconut Grove, Miami years ago. That's where I would paint the bar, the diners, dancers, musicians, magicians and of course, my favorite, the fortune teller. Now I take photo's and sketch on site, then paint back at my studio. I'll do some paintings from life, then I may do the same scene in a more abstract style. I just did this painting and will probably make a similar one large, because I really like it.
