This one was one of the first paintings I did after I left my nine to five. The owner of the local "in" eatery liked to support local artists and allowed wall space on a monthly basis. I was, as usual, low on confidence and high on fear, but it turned out just fine. Lots of interest but no sales. Still, I enjoyed the experience and found out I could actually speak to people about my work. Big growth spurt at the time.
