|"At The Abbey" oil on canvas 30"x 30"|
This coffeehouse painting was constructed in the studio, using fragments from on-the spot drawings to help guide the final composition. It satisfied a desire to work with multiple figures to form a simple narrative. I also wanted to contrast the sense of public space with the portable privacy of laptop users. I’ve included several drawings, only a few of which are directly related to the finished painting, though all of them were done in the same setting.
