Early Saturday Morning at The Flying Saucer

"Early Saturday Morning"  36" x 27"   Oil

I spent very little time in Fort Worth this week.  Portrait commissions took me to Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina.   So today I'm posting an older painting of The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium -- a downtown pub.  I'm fascinated with the architecture of this building and I like the contrast of the old structure with the new skyscraper in the background.  And, as always, I enjoy trying to capture the feeling of sunlight.

One of my favorite paintings by Edward Hopper is the one titled "Early Sunday Morning."  This scene reminded me of that painting -- with the red brick building and the sunlight raking across its facade.
