I actually had posted another thread about this painting a while ago, but had to get another image because the one I posted turned out to be awful - I just couldn't tell b/c I was using a small screen. This one should be much better.
This is a local dive bar/restaurant in Seattle that's been around forever. The scene looked so festive that just I had to paint it. I actually had done an oil pastel of the same scene quite a number of years ago.

And, I'm pleased to report, it sold. It was one of my first paintings to sell.
