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.
