Oil on canvas. (28 inches by 36 inches)

On display ...
“Nouveaux Two Déjà-vu” is on display from Feb. 7 through March 3, at Dabbert Gallery, 76 S. Palm Ave.

“It’s a combination of my sketchbook observations and my imagination. In this particular painting I used sketches (I made) in Santa Barbara, Calif., in Sarasota and France. They are all cobbled together. And if the painting requires things, when I need them, I go through my sketchbook and find them. (I used sketches) from the corner of Palm Avenue and Main Street where there is an outdoor café. I have lunch there quite often and I make sketches of people going by and I used that in my sketchbook. The trees in the background and some of the architecture is from Santa Barbara, and there’s probably some French stuff in there, too.”

Where: Found at Jack Dusty’s first birthday celebration, 1111 Ritz Carlton Drive.

What: Jack Dusty’s Market Entrée (vegetarian, $23).

The cooked puree and vegetables vary each week. In this salad is bulgur wheat, watermelon radish, edible dirt and baby greens atop a cooked red-pepper puree.
