"Dropped Buy"

8 x 10"
oil on panel

A new painting featuring one of my favorite paintings in the Art Institute of Chicago - Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawks'.  On a bench that faces this Hopper, I sit and watch people's reactions and I swear, I want to shout out loud when someone passes it by without so much as a glance.  "It's a MASTERPIECE!'  I want to scream.  

There are those who stop and stare, those smart ones.  Like this fellow, who dropped his bag to share my awe.

this may be my all time favorite painting and have tried copying it before - not so easy. great job and great way to capture someone "captivated." wow.
