The Jazz Bistro, Toronto

8 x 10 oil on canvas
Using the Beaches Jazz Festival as inspiration, this coming July Petroff Gallery is putting together an exhibition of works inspired by or representative of jazz music. I have decided to participate and paint images of Jazz venues in Toronto.
The Jazz Bistro on Victoria Street is an interesing location, situalted next to the famous Senator Restaurant. I did two versions and must decide which will work best on a 36 x 48 scale.
 Which composition do you prefer?

I will prefer the second one. The contrasts of light and shade and the reflections are so interesting. This is being critical... actually both are fabulous.

Hi Catherine,

I could not get this to load the other day, but think whichever design you choose will be great.
That is a big one!

XOXOXOXO Barbara

I loved them both, but I believe I prefer the second one also. The light is incredible and you couldn't get a stronger composition. The first one is also very interesting
