This hyperrealism painting reminded me that every day life in the cityscape when its perception has been focused is quite capable of being art. When I came upon this work of art I felt as though I stopped my stride in the isle of a grocery store. I could feel the desire for a beer well up inside me. I started craving a dark heavy lager. I was surprised that something so commercial could be so appealing in an artistic way.
