I needed to touch this one up slightly before it was ready to post. Sometimes it's hard to get the balance just right when you're out sitting on the curb with tourists chatting and the flippers doing their thing. It was such fun to be out there, though, in the midst of all the bustle. I'm going to have to get down there again soon. I've got an evening commission for Beale, and I've got a whole evening planned out in my mind -- Elmore sitting around with a beer while I paint and then fish tacos at the Flying Fish. I'll report back on how that goes....
