:work: Story Behind the Artwork :work:
EDIT: Fixed some of the perspective on the dessert menu. Better photo quality too!
In celebration of the 100th birthday of the city of Avalon on Catalina Island, I decided to get back into oil painting! I celebrated my 28th birthday on the Island with KenCumpian and had pizza at Antonio's; this was my view of the Casino. I had to take two pictures to get what I saw with my eyes on the camera.

I miss painting with oils and my painterly style. It felt good to be back :)

I figured you updated this painting, so I had to take another look! I have to tell you that it reminds me SO much of diners when I was young. Some diners today are retro and have on-table juke boxes, but they don't have the funky tablecloths the old diners used to have :aww:

I love going to retro diners. They always have the good music =D This one has the tablecloth under laminate. Definitely better than the plain tables! =D

I finally remembered the Pearl Jam Song: Hearts and Thoughts (Fade Away) and the Suzanne Vega is {somebody's} Diner. This painting is a perfect illustration of both.

Me too! All the ones I come across no longer work. They are just there for aesthetics :(
