Bartender with citrus fruits-sold

Oil on panel, 6" x 8"
This guy was tending the bar at McCormick and Schmidt in downtown Providence. They always have a big bowl of oranges, lemons and limes at the end of the bar, a vibrant note of color in an otherwise dark interior (except for the TV, which I might have left out except it framed his head so nicely.)

You always capture movement so well. The colors and light in the drinks on the bar are indescribable!

Kathy, I love the pop of color that pulls you into the painting. And the drinks in the foreground...a toast to you!

I love the neutrals in this one, with just the pop of color. It's amazing how much you can "say" on a 6x8!

TV ties in so beautifully with the margaritas on the counter which is my favorite drink-like this a lot
