At the Hob Nob
24" x 30" - acrylic on canvas - $450
This is not my usual subject matter nor style, but one seemed to demand the other.
The Hob Nob is a 'Sarasota landmark', and its oldest drive-in diner, having been around since the 1950s.
Several years ago I was with friends touring some artist studios in that area and we stopped at the diner for lunch. While eating a very interesting looking man in full leathers and wearing a helmet that matched his motorcycle, pulled up. I had to take some photos, surreptitiously of course, and since then have been thinking about painting him. I finally did it this spring. Though my original photo did include all of his motorcycle, I felt the cropped composition worked better on this sized canvas. A fun painting.
