#29 It'll All Work Out

#29 of the challenge. Sometimes, whether it's a stranger or a friend, I think we all need someone to say, "It'll all work out".  Maybe this man is in the middle of a crisis. This is one of those paintings that named itself after the fact! On the other hand, maybe he simply wanted a cold beer. Then the title would have to change, and I'm too tired!


  1. love how you've made the interior a delightful mosaic of pattern, it really draws the eye to the figures and their one on one. wonderful painting!

  2. I have three things to say:

    1. Yes to the mosaic of pattern and color!
    2. Maybe the bartender is the one getting counsel from the customer!
    3. "It'll all work out" is exactly what I need to hear today. Thank you : )

  3. I like the intimacy of this one...just think what kinds of things bartenders hear from their customers. Love the title...a great thing to remind ourselves of.

  4. Oh, wow, this is beautiful!! I love your painting style and your color choices. And I think the title is perfect!!

  5. Love the patchwork colors. I also love when your paintings are smooth blocks of color (so good at everything!) Even before reading the title, I thought of... comforting. The warmth just draws me in, and it is so clear that there is a deep connection in this moment.
    Again I am drawn into that back corner behind the bar. Probably the restrooms, but maybe the entrance? There is just enough light that makes me want to find out. Wonderful work Laurie :)

  6. It always amazes me what you manage to convey with connecting blocks of color - fabulous!. Great floor too, Laurie!
