Outside the Cafe

Outside the Cafe is a 16" by 22" prismacolor pencil drawing.

An outside group of people reflecting into the window of an inside restaurant. The little girl drinking the bottle was inside watching me take reference photos. The people at the outside tables were relaxing after a Vuelta de Bisbee bike race, which we had gone down to see. This is one of my personal favorite works. I so enjoyed how things just fit together so naturally, even the patterns of the curtains and windowsill paint contrasting with the darker colors in the window were a pleasant contrast of values and colors.

Nogales Window Patterns

Nogales Window Patterns is a 24" by 30" prismacolor pencil drawing.

Exploring the mingling of images of people on the sidewalk reflecting into the window display in a busy store. The owner of a gallery I was in at the time purchased this drawing, which I considered a nice compliment.
