Richard Bober: Belly Up to the Bar, Boys!
Originally a commissioned cover illustration for one in a series of mystery novels by S. T. Haymon, "Death of a God" published by Bantam Books, 1990 (according to Jamie Warren Youll, then Bantam's Art Director), Bober felt compelled to revise it to feature a different cast of drinking buddies (!) Wonderfully colorful and in the spirit of his Colonel Warthog paintings; filled with "over the top" realizations of characters and detailing. The disco ball is an especially nice touch! One of his best, and one that's taken him years to complete to his satisfaction. In oils with glazing, 40" x 30" on canvas
