back ... 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
(see also The Street).
