GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- "Lucky's Place" reflects the light hearted scene of the restaurant patrons, best presented in the style of the American comic book. The work's composition in the main dining area is loosely (perhaps not so loosely) based on DaVinci's "Last Supper," with vignettes suggested by the art of Paul Cadmus. The painted characters portray the variety of those who are Grand Rapids. Jack's background in scenic painting for stage has taught him the necessary skills for large scale mural work. "Lucky's Place" is an example of such, drawing the art directly to the wall and using interior latex for color, with black acrylic as outline.
