White Apron

oil on cradled panel

This is from my trip last year to Monterey. My friend and I were the first customers for dinner. We took liberties and went around the restaurant taking pictures. They were very nice about the whole thing. I finished this under Stanley Goldstein. I study with him every Monday night. He is a walking encyclopedia of art as well as a great artist.  I haven't posted in awhile as I have been working on some commissions that I just can't be satisfied with yet. I keep going forward, thinking eventually they will come together. Ever been there?


  1. I like the strong light patterns created by the windows.
    I know what you mean about the commissioned paintings....been there big time! :)

  2. I had intended to comment sooner Kaethe - this painting is very atmospheric! You have really captured the expectant feel of a restaurant that is all freshly coifed ready for its first customers of the evening.
