Bartender, The Hot Club- sold


Oil on canvas, 6" x 8"
The Hot Club, a casual, laid-back bar on the waterfront in Providence, derives its name not from the qualities of its clientele or staff but from the fact that it actually used to be a boiler room. The wall of windows on the west side allows the late afternoon light to come streaming in.

Another great painting. I love the warm light and the way you suggest things like the bottles with only a few brush strokes. Great composition too.

Nice use of the rectangle and great unconventional pose of the bartender. Keeping things simple is something you definately know.

Kathy, I love the pose of the bartender - and your treatment of the background - these bar scenes are great!
