CANTERS, FAIRFAX


This is my new painting, "Canters, Fairfax". It is a relatively large painting for me, 36 x 48 inches, oil on canvas. I've spent months working on this one, it's one of my favorite pieces this year. Canter's is a really great deli located on Fairfax in Hollywood.

Excellent painting. I ate there when I was in LA last spring.

Glad your folks house was spared.

Hey Bill. The lettering ain't so bad, it's a necessity in urban landscapes for signage.

Hi BG, thanks! Yeah, I made use of my sable brushes for a smoother surface. Dark paintings with heavy brushwork don't work very well, they have too much reflective glare on the surface.
