"Ristorante"

This waiter looks like he'd rather be anywhere but where he is at this time!  I enjoyed painting (and inventing) the abstracted background, where there is reflected imagery and real walls and glass.  White is hard to paint, but white has shadows and reflected light so there is always some color, somewhere...

He IS a bit grumpy-looking, but what a great job capturing that expression! And I love how you have painted the background.
