Here's a medium size painting I did a few years ago of Megan, my son's girlfriend, sitting in the restaurant
The Stork on The Roof. The restaurant was recommended
to us by Diana Fisher, and we always enjoyed our meals there.
It had a Netherlands feel, and there were Dutch dishes from time to time. I like the abstract waitress in this work, who I can picture from the few smudges I made to represent her.
Unfortunately the Stork is gone now, but the mood of dining out on a hot night remains in this image.
Megan and Christopher are in Korea, and although
we've spoken to both of them on Skype, I miss
having them drop in in person to share a meal
and some laughs.
Have a great eating night!
