|Six of my twelve paintings hanging at Katie's Coffee at the Old Brogue|
Some of my photos need re-taking, but here's a shot of the main wall you see walking in. "Sunset in NYC" (the NYC skyline painted in my hotel shower) is hung back behind the bar/counter ... "Stepping Out" (my painting of horses) is near the door.
We hung "Two for Tea," the painting created almost two years ago inside the Brogue of two women enjoying tea ... at the table we've sat at many, many times. Also in the show is "Cars and Coffee," painted on the hill in front of the Brogue. One of the wait staff was so glad that was in the show as she was working the day I was painting it.
The Brogue feels like home. It's a lot like the sitcom "Cheers." The dining rooms are filled with friends. The wait staff know what you're going to order. The Brogue is a big part of the community. The place to gather for all of us who don't spend too much time in the kitchen.
It's a coffee house in the morning to early afternoon. Takes a two-hour break. Then, it's an extension of the Brogue restaurant for dinner. I love having my work there.
Tomorrow ... early evening ... I'll be having dinner in there with the members of "The Poker Club" who will be looking at the finished painting for the first time ... live. That will be fun!
Take a look at the exhibit online ... or better yet, come!
