Coffee House #1

10"x 10"
acrylic on canvas

I hadn't seen my friend Beth since 5th grade (34 years ago!) until we recently reconnected on Facebook. She saw some of my art work posted on Facebook and asked if I would hang some in her new espresso and tea bar, Paradise Perks in Irvine, California. Beth has done a wonderful job of creating a beautiful and inviting neighborhood destination and I feel honored to be hanging my art there. Here is one of three paintings hanging in Paradise Perks and I plan to continue to add to the series but would like some help with names....for the series and the individual paintings. I would love to hear what you think!

Congratulations Annie! This is a wonderful painting and it is so cool that you were able to reconnect with a classmate. I will have to go by to see your work!
As a series you could call it "Life's Perks"...?

How fun to find an old friend and a place to display your awesome work! I love the shadows the most on this one. I also recognize this "pose" as you see many people with their computers open while on the phone when visiting coffee shops. Great painting!

Isn't the internet awesome in that way!? I love how it all worked out for you. Any business would be lucky to have your paintings on their walls.
