The "Grackle Coffee Shop"

"Grackle Coffee Shop" 11x14 oil on board SOLD
From a photo I took mid July. The lady and the dog have been moved over to improve the composition.
This was a fun painting to do lots of looseness combined with some sign writing.
I tried hard to not let the sign dominate, and think I succeeded.
As I worked on this it made me appreciate the charm of Main Street Schomberg, especially if you squint!
Lots of lovely foliage and no parked cars. How different the reality.
Grackle Coffee is a delightful place, wonderful service, splendid rich coffee and a great supporter of Main Street and local artists.


See this and the Schomberg Series of Paintings now on sale at the Grackle Coffee Company
