"Coffee and Conversation"

Oil on Board
contact River Bend Fine Art Gallery for purchase information

I was going through some unsold paintings and came across a 6"x6" one I did of this subject last spring. I looked at it and thought that maybe I could improve upon it so did it again. It IS definitely an improvement! Much better color, looser, better cropping and use of space. I love the subject. It seems like we rarely see much done about middle-aged people or that affirms commitment past the more romantic phase. This couple had the feel to me of being together through life's ups and downs and I am happy to celebrate that! The location was Sisters Coffee House in Sisters, OR.

Thank you.
