Making Merry

12x18 oil on linen

This is a commissioned piece for a collector who gets first dibs at a new gallery I'm sending work to next week. A similar scene sparked their interest but was no longer available. This is the King Cole bar in the St. Regis hotel in NYC - and the huge mural behind it is by Maxfield Parrish. Its really quite an awesome setting. Very dim and cozy with the mural dominating the room. I wish I had found this link to the bar earlier! What a great image of the mural. My pictures are not so clear, having been taken at night while trying to be subtle in the busy bar. We should've had a drink and stayed awhile. Next time.

I am happy to share the news that Charleston House in Montgomery is going to be representing my work. This painting and a few others are going to be available in their gallery next week.

Great painting! Interiors, such as this, are some of my favorite subjects. Your did a really good job.

I clicked on the link to the King Cole Bar. Very interesting. Do you know the secret in the mural? I'll have to visit there next time I am in NYC, have a Red Snapper and discover the secret!

Good news about Charleston House. Congratulations!

Hi Linda -
I don't know what the secret is but I am intrigued. Anyone out there want to let us in on it?
