This one was completed last fall.  Trying to recreate the “feel” of this.

It was the time of year when night falls earlier and earlier.  I love the idea of folks getting together after a long  week.

Brisk rainy night outside, warmth inside.  A packed place, SRO.  Cooks and servers darting about between tables.  The sounds of dozens of discussions, laughter.  Air is thick with the smell of good food in the warm crowded small space.

Love the ambiance!

If you get one dog exploring the ornaments, well, you gotta get the other one, too!

As part of their Annual Miniatures show, Abend Gallery also celebrated their 25 anniversary by offering artists these small silver-leafed panels to paint on.

What a challenge painting on silver!  Hard to distinguish the value (lightness/darkness) of the silver. And what a challenge to photograph without glare on that shiny surface.   (reflections are rampant)

Congratulations Abend Gallery on your 25th Anniversary!!

Put on those running/walking shoes!
