lake george cafe vero ( 3′ x 4′ ) na

this large piece was commissioned by ryan miller for the cafe vero in lake george new york. i used a variety of techniques in this work. i used a high impasto pointillist approach for the coffee , smooth glazed surface for the cup, textured faux woodgrain for the table and a combination of bars and dots for the water. i often use various methods of representation or visual vocabularies in my work to develop contrast, harmony, and to direct the attention of the viewer.
