Has a late afternoon feel for me. The mood perhaps melancholy because of the purple.. but that is a plus and gives this painting a Hopper style ringing in my eyes. The value shifts and complements really pop the shapes in an enjoyable way. No doubt the coffee shop is the main attraction.
Yeah, it's a little less abstract than your pieces usually are, but probably necessary to get it to read as Andy's from that angle.I am especially impressed by the Airstream in the alley painting. The drawing reads very realistic but the application of paint to the canvas is utterly abstract! Wow!
WK well thatnks Wm, but I think it's a frog prince.
Thanks V-- thats Randall Sexton if I remember correctly- He's really good.
I photographed Andy's Coffe Shop a few years back, just couldn't find that "something" about it that captured my interest enough to paint it. But considering the subject, you did pretty darn well with it. I love that Degas pic of the seated woman by the window, I saw it in London at the Courtauld Gallery. They've also got that self-portrait of Van Gogh with the bandaged ear.
I was seduced by the great gold light that's on there often. Perhaps light is not enough.
You'r being too hard on yourself, dude!I agree with Bill Moore's official time-of-day assessment, although I don't catch a melancholy vibe, but that's just me. The whole dying sunlight thing does it for me.
Hey, I really enjoy your work. It's always cool to see an artist's take on the everyday images that suround us. I think your painting adds some magic to what we might otherwise miss.
Agree, you caught Andy's in a nothing special moment. I don't really see the gold but I know I've seen it appear many times.Still, a special coffee shoppe from de 50s.
Too normal, eh? I can so relate. It's a very good painting, regardless, perhaps just not as "energetic" as some of your others...I find the sky particularly wonderful.
You might be too big for this, but I was wondering if you'd consider having two of your paintings on the cover of the next J Bloglandia.http://wapshottpress.com/j-bloglandia/No hard feelings if not. I'll still love your work.Gingereditor AT wapshottpress.com
I like it, it shows a grittier side of Pasadena, not the polished face of the city.
It's just a little tighter than your usual, Bill, but the Wray flare is there! Good stuff.
I think really good artists sometimes push their work to places where they are unhappy with the end result. I always enjoy seeing where you are going with your work.
Good artists, all of the first one to the last You choose always a few very interesting hours to do paintA picture is an adventure, I think that the final result almost the painter never chooses it.You do I injure the arm?
fantasticas obras, me gusta ...felicidades.

Thanks, William. I went with two paintings from Raoul de la Sota for this issue, but I'll definitely be back for future issues, if you don't mind.
Sure sorry I took to long to reply.You don't have to ask again, just let me know
I enjoyed yours even if you didn't AND all of the others you posted (being "lazy" has its benefits..)!!
Too "normal"? Well, let's disagree. I think it's beautiful.
