The first painting completed in 2018. This is oil on canvas and the title is “The Last Customer” It is of Bob’s Diner in #Brewster, NY. I’m painting some of the buildings that will be demolished when they build our new town center in a couple of years, as we will not see their like again. Small theaters, 50’s diners, and Pool Halls.
Brewster, New York is a village within the Town of Southeast. They are going to renovate the village in late 2018-19. They will knock down several historic buildings, including a 50’s Diner (Bob’s Diner) a Pool Hall and the old Cameo Theater. I plan to paint them each before they are gone.
Here is an in-progress sketch of Bob’s Diner interior. I will add more works as I go along
This is another larger one at 36 X 48 inches in size. I wanted to capture some of the aspects of nature without making it relative to size. At the bottom I have painted some pollen grains that I think have a wonderful abstract quality. This painting is bright, without being overwhelming. If you look carefully you’ll find a tiny homage to the first video game I played and also a pair of my tired eyes after painting the many very tiny details this painting holds.
