next ... Detail © 1989 Tom Ferguson Still got this'un 90 x 30" acrylic/masonite ...
Another of the all-you-can-eat subjects, sketched on the spot & used later for painting.
Done on masonite, searching for that smooth surface I needed at
the time. Masonite worked well but is heavier than ideal, at this size. I
love the way a title occurs to me, seems right... then I get it,
sometimes only after considerable time passes. Where's that come from?
I spent 9 weeks in Dublin, GA, doing
a Ga Council for the Arts residency ... used to go to an inexpensive
all-you-can-eat place. Made a couple discreet sketches of folks
who took full advantage of the policy. They made sort of a ballet
out of it
