"Thursday Nighthawks"

12 x 11"
oil on masonite

Probably the most-beloved painting in the Art Institute of Chicago - Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawks' - being viewed closely by a patron on the museum's Free-Thursday night event held every week.

This painting will be included in the 19th Annual Invitational Small Works Show at the Howard/Mandville Gallery, opening November 14th. Please click here for a larger view.

This painting grabs me and then takes me in and ... I don't even know how to react. It is simply amazing! said...

Beautiful use of blues

I find these pieces with the figures back to us something so interesting/mysterious,... can't quite figure out what it is for me and why I'm drawn to these. Of course the added zing is your ode to Hopper.

I love it! I was just in Chicago myself, doing what the gentleman in your painting is doing.

Somehow, you managed to capture the soulfulness of museum gazing.

Enjoying your blog regularly...
