Liza, I really enjoyed reading the article about your work. Thanks for providing the link to that. I also think these last two paintings are wonderful, so full of life and energy!

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you very much, Sheila!
After quite some time of frustration I now feel as if I'm getting a grip of it again and I am pleased that you see it in my paintings.

Mark Adams said...

Liza, This painting is wonderful! I am no stranger to this tableau, being a member of the American Institute of Wine and Food, and you have electrified this familiar scene. Nice job!

Barbara M. said...

I just love this. But how do you
do it? Do you take a camera into
the restaurant?

So lush and lively. Terrific.


Liza Hirst said...

Mark and Barbara, thank you both very much for your kind comments!
Yes, I did actually take a photograph in the restaurant with my mobile phone, Barbara.
I often paint from photographs.

I have admired your work since I came across your blog! this is my new favourite! So much fire and romance. All it's missing is champagne.

Hi Jen,
How nice to hear from you again! Thank you very much for your kind comment - I'll think of you and the champagne when I do something similar next time!
