Rosie's had been a staple on Water Street for many years. Recently closed and replaced by a place called Elwood's, the title "Rosie's Last Stand" seemed fitting as I shot the reference photos for this painting shortly before Rosie's was sold and closed.
It's amazing how much I learn about my subjects by sharing my paintings with others. People tell me interesting stories I often didn't know. For example, in the process of selling the original painting, it earned an honorary name. Turns out my patron Sally, met her husband, Dave, at Rosie's. Interestingly, neither of them ever went to Rosie's before they met or since - never ever. So I declared the honorary name to be "Sally and Dave's Destiny."

Description from Merchant:
Quality and workmanship are very important to me. I use the finest artist grade materials in creating my original paintings, and all paintings are custom-framed by professionals. Likewise, archival grade media and pigment inks are used in creating my prints - both open and limited editions - and limited edition prints are numbered, titled and personally signed by me. Whether you purchase a painting or print, the work should be colorful and stable for generations.
