Have a few things left to do on this one, but I’m pretty happy with it. This is the closest I get to plein aire in the summer here in Oklahoma. It’s usually too hot and there are too many chiggers and ticks in the grass… But on my morning walk I made a quick sketch and took a reference photo. 🙂

Oklahoma Snow

Snow is a rare event in Oklahoma. A couple of weeks ago we had a really good 3 inches and cold enough temperatures that it stuck for a while. I love being the first one out of the house when it snows…making the first foot prints…listening to that crunching sound under my boots. Here is what it looked like from our front gate…my impression anyway…

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!!! 🙂
