Mayflower Cafe

10 x 20 oil on canvas panel

I have been struggling on this one for several days.  I painted it on a 16 x 20 canvas and there was too much wall to the right of painting so I have cropped all of that out and plan on pulling canvas from frame and re-mounting.  I have done that before and it works ok.  The painting was just too heavy to the left.  This will probably be my last sign; I have overworked it, I fear, trying to get perspective, proportions and lines correct.  This is a local Greek restaurant that has been around for a long, long time.  We go there frequently and we always enjoy seeing old friends - neat atmosphere and great food!
