Dinner at McFadden's- sold

Oil on canvas, 16" x 20"
This is a larger piece I finished recently. If you've ever been to this restaurant, you'll notice I didn't include the row of TVs over the bar (too much light at the top of the painting, when I really wanted to focus on the waitress and the diners).  Makes it look like a nice place to just go and talk, doesn't it?
This painting isn't for sale right now- it's headed for a show in Philadelphia at the F.A.N. Gallery in August.

You have such a great way of painting interiors... your colour choices invoke the feel of the room... the mood of the moment.
Love this series.

Hi Kathy.
This painting is absolutely brilliant. The faces of the diners are almost a portrait of them. And your previous painting of the two ladies is also brilliant. Well done kathy, and all the best.
Vic.

You really create wonderful places. Adding the TVs not only would have changed the lighting , but it would have taken the this piece in a whole new direction.

Successful, impressive and ambitious painting. I understand where the focus is, but I'm intrigued by your integration of the supporting background bar area, especially the couple on the right. CONGRATULATIONS.

I am looking forward to seeing your paintings in person at the Fan Gallery as I live near Philadelphia.
