A GREAT place to eat on the square in Covington Ga.!
My wife and I and friends have been a few times and it's great food and atmosphere
I had been wanting to do a large oil painting of it ever since it opened up but could never get the right elements happening around it. Sometimes the lighting wasnt right or the sky was too black or too blue. Most of the time too many cars were parked around it taking away from the beauty of the bldg.
So one stormy night I sat at home looking out my upstairs studio window and the sky was going thru some changes I thought looked interesting. I thought "Mystic Grill." So I got in my car immediately and drove 15 minutes and got to the Grill. It was app. 9:30pm late May and the sky was perfect. I quickly took photos of it and it was as you see here in this photo of the painting. I came by the next evening and did two outdoor preliminary sketches of the bldg becasue quite often a photograph will distort (compress or stretch) objects. So once I got everything scaled right I went to work on it. The painting is a large 18x24 and has won Best of Show and 1st Place Awards.
