Love that you brought another picture of the artist...and the keywords you picked. :)xx

Leovi said...

Yes, there are jobs that are not sufficiently valued!

Sandee said...

Very well done.

Have a blessed Sunday my friend. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

How much better the composition of the second picture is - bodies sliced in half in the first, make for unease...

ccchampagne said...

What a brilliant turn-around of the prompt! Fantastic!

Jim Swindle said...

Quite creative.

The other side is hard work, especially when done so well it deceptively looks easy.

Charleen said...

Oh, yes! That is the life of the service industry. I've been in those shoes before.

I love hopper's work. He painted a picture of an usher daydreaming in a picture show that haunts me.

A tribute to the artist not usually done! Kind gesture Kathe!

Hopper is one of my favorites, nice to see the progression of his work from the first to second. He seems to see inside his subject.

Fun to see another view...

Cait O'Connor said...

I agree with Tess, I was longing to see more of the restaurant, thank you!

I too noticed the wait staff.......
But, differently. ;-)

I love what you've done with the prompt and the additional picture.

Very nice, like a camera shift or a change of perspective.
