Edward Hopper's Coffee, 16x20, A/C

This one is five houses ago, at my old cabin. That kitchen had great light. The floor was bare concrete, painted turquoise, which sounds awful but really wasn't. It worked. I still have that mug. For the record, the perspective is skewed on purpose. I wanted it to feel like you were going to fall into the mug. Not sure if that worked, but i like the light. I remember being on a Pthalo green kick with this one, especially in the lighter shadow and the highlight on the edge of the sink. Strange what we remember at random, eh?

SOLD
to a collector in Jenks, OK

Zack an absolute gem of a painting. I think it scores on all points - colour, values, mood, the lot.

Wow. it's beautiful and even feels like it could be hopper's cup. What is it? the loneliness? the harsh light or green hues he used?

Beautiful - beautiful colors and light - very quiet... Think I'll go make some coffee :0)

The perspective may be a little different from the norm, but definitely not skewed. It's been done very well. Love it!
