"Two for Margaritas"
This painting began as a continuation of my Key West series, with a Panama Yellow 1958 Corvette parked in front of Key West’s original Margaritaville Cafe. I wanted to show the color of the location as well as the activity on the sidewalk including the bicycles. When my daughter saw the work about half finished, she jokingly asked, “Why aren’t I in this painting?” What a great question. So I researched photographs of last summer’s Key West family vacation and secretly placed Allison on the extreme left, then my son Adam to her right. For Christmas, I framed two larger Artist’s Proofs as a major surprise. The title is “Two for Margaritas,” although I considered “Waiting for a Table.”

Giclée vs Litho
Printing technology changed when the type of scanners used to produce the printing plates evolved. That required changing my printing to the newest and more expensive Giclée Printing. Giclée (pronounced jyee-clay) is printed by a high quality ink jet printing process. Scanning is done in a higher resolution, producing better quality than the previous Offset Lithographic process.
