The Calling

The Calling

Many years ago I was having a beer with my brother at a tavern called the Walsh. He offered to buy me another one but I declined because I wanted to get some art done before I drank too much. So I went outside and looked around for something to draw and this street light seemed to be calling me. After sketching it I went back into the bar and took up my brother’s offer. I got the itch to paint it right there and then. But you can’t paint in a bar right? It was a small sketch and I figured my watercolors wouldn’t take up too much space. So I got them out and painted this sitting at the bar drinking. It was the first time I ever did that. But not the last.
