This is another large painting on a small painting surface. My experiments have gained more momentum. I have spent quite a few significant hours on it. It is a gallery level painting, but I want to see if I can market it myself. The price is different from the most of my daily studies, but I guarantee it has a high quality. The scene was from a photo I took in Kinston, NC. I was invited by a group of workshop artists for a dinner in a very good restaurant. The food was so delicious. Moreover, we sat by a window to the kitchen. I snapped many photos of the chefs working there.

In current representational art world, one of the master artists I really admire is Quang Ho. It happened several times in the past, some artists mistakenly thought I am Quang. I was flattered every time when this happened because I knew Quang and I are not in the same level. When I just joined OPA, Quang is already the judge of OPA National Shows. I really like Quang's painting of kitchen scenes. Before I paint this one, I looked and studied Quang's paintings. They helped me significantly.

This is one of the most amazing example of saying everything with only the smallest essences of details. The entire professional stove is there, but it's just a few blocks of dark. The walls, counters, bins, lights, people -- all captured by the least possible, but highly accurate, detail. Bravo!

Don't discount your own mastery. This one is really good! It would be great in a large version too. My hat is off to you!

Spot on Qiang, so much with so little and the paint is so clean and fresh.
