Winos, Dingbats & Riff Raff

This was my last painting from Winter term. I used a photo from The Oregonian newspaper and tweaked it a bit. It's 18" x 24" in acrylic.

I ended up darkening the lettering on the building front after I took this photo of the painting, but otherwise it looks the same. This place is called the Historic Barge Inn Tavern located in Newport, Oregon, an Oregon coastal town.

This website has a nice article on Newport and this tavern: http://www.oregonlive.com/O/index.ssf/2009/01/newports_piece_of_the_authenti.html

I haven't actually been to the Barge Inn, but I intend to go....one of these days.
