Old Tumacocori Bar 16x20

Im not a drinker but i drive by this old place alot . I did a painting of this which sold in the recent gallery show (karin newby gallery)here in Tubac. Another person came in to buy it also and it was gone so the gallery asked if i would do another,i took another shot of this place this morning and just finished this one. I will send a jpeg so the gallery could email it to the person. Another sale ,

Well I finished Cherry Suite thought I would post to show the final version. Added some more sunlight to the trees and bushes and a few other details. I still think there are some things to do but as Brian says "never finish a painting completely"... Happy Easter! Sharka
