    Brick Facades, Hurrahs

    The haiku was based on Armory nights, and as soon as I read it, I got a scene in my mind's eye that made it easier to make artwork. When I went down to Armory Square to take photos, I happened to see a person at The Blue Tusk sitting at the bar. To me it looked like he was waiting for someone to show up, so that's the scene I painted. The viewer would be the person going to meet a friend at a bar; with the warm lights coming from inside the bar and the extra glass of beer sitting there, it's a welcoming scene. I think it's something that's widely relatable. I wanted people to look at it and be reminded that we have some very big city benefits and of the good parts of the community.
