MoriARTy's in Philadelphia
On Walnut street in Philly, as we were celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday with family and friends, I came across this dark, intimate and multi-colored scene upstairs at Moriarty's Bar and Restaurant.
Standing on a chair, I photographed this spot knowing I would paint it later. This kaleidoscope scene of glowing lights and dramatic colors reflecting everywhere just seemed to pop harmonizing against a black background.
Funny, a photography friend of mine said I should name it - 'Bottoms Up.'
