Diner, my shiny, shiny love!

I have been at the easel the past two days, having a ball! I'd been missing painting. I forget how much I love it. And I love how quickly a painting takes shape. I'm trying to get a few things done for the "Cups &..." exhibit I'll be having at the local Barnes and Noble Cafe' in February. I have quite a few things done, but have some more that I've been wanting to do. So I've been painting this "Diner" painting (16x20", water soluble oils). It's inspired by Martin Sexton's song, "Diner," which is my favorite 'get-my-feet-moving' song. You may remember it from a Scrubs episode, where they can't stand still while listening to it, either!

Anyway, here's my painting. It's still quite wet, which means it may not be finished. If you see anything that could make it better, let me know. I am quite open to critique ... as long as you don't just come right out and say, "Wow, that was a royal waste of time - and it STINKS!" If you feel that way about it, let me know more gently, OK? I have one of those tender artist's egos. Can't help it. I just do.

And, by the way...
