One night a few years ago I was out with a good sized group and we decided to stop in at the local cigar bar. It was a great night, little Bourbon, tasty cigar, friends and conversation. As the conversation ebbs and wains like they tend to do I decided to take a couple shots on my phone. One of the shots summed up the night, and I could not resist painting it. The original is really nothing like the painting except in terms of layout. The room was not near this smoky, and the person to my left was actually talking and making a point. However, as I often do, I let the paint tell the story it wanted and the room got really smoky.
