Although this says “on canvas”, this painting was the first that I’ve created on a prepared wood panel. Boy, this took some getting used to. It’s like the difference between driving on blacktop and driving on ice. The wood panel was a “slick track”. The panel had next to no “grab”, so I really had to adjust. Had to think about edges and transitions. Was more difficult to blend.

Always enjoy painting neon signs. Liked the challenge of painting this during a rainy gray day background. That’s my son walking in the foreground – had to bribe him to pose with some baked goods.

Termini’s Bakery in Philly is the best. The best cannoli anywhere. And, their Italian cookies are to die for. Great cheesecake. It’s all good. When entertaining friends from out of town, gotta get some Termini’s after a cheesesteak run.
