Luncheon Party at Jimbos on Virginia Key 2008: oil on board : 10X12 : Based on one of my favorite french impressionist paintings, Renoir's Luncheon oftheBoating Party.
The Luncheon of the Boating Party by Pierre-Auguste Renoir remains the best known and most popular work of art at The Phillips Collection, just as
Duncan Phillips imagined it would be when he bought it in 1923. The original painting captures an idyllic atmosphere as the artist's friends share
food, wine, and conversation on a deck overlooking Virginia Key and Biscayne Bay in Miami. Floridians flocked to Jimbo's to rent rowing skiffs, eat
smoked fish, drink beer, or stay the night. The painting also reflects the changing character of American society since 1950 to the early 21st
century. The restaurant welcomes customers of many classes, including businessmen, bikers, society women, artists, actresses, writers,
critics, seamstresses, and shop girls. This diverse group embodied a new, modern Miami society. A moment in time. Call it for what it is, likeRockwell
Renoir mighta said, we paint life as we see it. Not how it is but how we would like it to be.
