A snowy day in Park Slope found me having coffee with my daughter, Ellie, and her new baby, Olive (she doesn't drink coffee yet so was sound asleep) in SweetWolf's.
Having paintings at the Townhouse Coffee House was such a big success, I decided to find out if I could show here as well. I met the owner and I will display paintings in the Sixth Avenue cafe/restaurant in June.
The painting shown above, is the first piece done especially for the occasion.
The Coffee House has really made a comeback lately as people sit around for hours working on their computers. They are not in the office or at home alone. There is at least the illusion of company, and good hot coffee and pastries always at the ready.
People are actually talking to each other as well. I remember very well 50 years or so ago going to the newly revised version of the coffee house at that time and hearing Phil Oakes sing for the first time.
When somebody takes out a guitar in one of these new places, we will have come full circle.
