The Muse comes at the last minute…

This is a painting from a few years ago. My gallery owner suggested I do a painting of the Sugar Bowl, an old landmark restaurant in Scottsdale. I set up my easel and started painting but the muse seemed to ignore me. I had a rather sub-par painting about done when I realized some shadows started making some interesting shapes on the facade which got my juices flowing. I made a few quick strokes and took a photo before the light slipped away. I finished it in my studio and this was the result. It was purchased by the wife of the owner of the Sugar Bowl and I’m told it is hanging in the restaurant.
