September 2015 – 30 Paintings in 30 Days

I love participating in this month long challenge!!!  Only 3 days and September will be on us again. I can’t believe how fast time has gone this year. For the next few days I’m going to be collecting inspiration and canvases and maybe even getting a head start on a painting or two.  If you would like to join in on the fun, you can sign up… 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Hoboken Coffee Roasters

In my opinion Hoboken Coffee Roasters is the best thing that ever happened to our little town of Guthrie, Oklahoma. You can read all about the beginnings of this unique coffee shop on their website… Hoboken Coffee Roasters.

Here is my rendition…

I took some artistic license here, moving some of the shelving on the left side over, as I wanted to include the flower arrangement in the painting. This painting is the second in my restaurant series, the first being Kitchen No. 324. In each painting I am wanting to include certain elements… a flower arrangement, something under a table and a reflection. This painting has reflections in the beautiful Diedrich coffee roasting machine, which by the way I got totally carried away painting the details… so fun!!! 🙂
