Last Friday Night, acrylic on acid free paper 12×18,

This 50’s style Diner now sits vacant, I did not get the opportunity to see it in its prime (because I am not old enough) but this building drew me in as I was driving past it. I would imagine that it once thrived with hungry customers but time has rendered it useless. Now an eye sore as nature takes over to reclaim its space, but as I drove by it took me to a place I have never seen before (the 1950’s Friday night). To share my experience of that night in passing though the 1950’s, hope you enjoy “Last Friday Night” as much as I did.

    This is stunning! Really really cool!

  5. I adore how you show your work in progress! I like the gestural paint work, combined with detail such as the 57 Chevy and the man looking back. The sky really sets the mood, as something unusual, and draws me to look deeper into the narrative of the scene.

  6. Thank You so very much Luanne, πŸ™‚

  7. Thank You so very much Wildersoul, normally I don’t give the details away because I like the audience to find them but this was something new I was trying πŸ™‚

  8. You are welcome! πŸ™‚ It is helpful in training perception, when we are new to spotting such details. The next picture I look at, I will be primed to search for them myself! πŸ™‚

  9. I hope when you find something you will share in comments πŸ™‚

  10. Thank you! I will search for something on my next browse through! πŸ™‚
