Saturday with friends

cafe coffee

I’m relaxed and content. It’s Saturday night and have had a perfect day with my friend Kathy. She took me out to lunch and then for a visit at her place with her husband and daughter. In between, I began this painting at Caffe Classico, where I start every Saturday. Their coffee ( is a triumph and trumpets down my throat and warms the stomach.

Also pleased, that this painting is delicate and actually “pretty”. I have a tendency to overwork my line, but think I held back enough to let the drawing speak for itself.

  1. I agree, this painting is delicate and pretty.When I looked at your painting and then read your first words, “I am relaxed and content” I could really see that in your art. Lovely! Peace, Harlon

  2. And speak it does – and guess what? My journal is doing the same thing!!! I would have thought it was just me, but now that I know all about sizing gone bad – wow, thanks, Barry. Lesson learned. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. What a lovely painting to have my morning coffee with today!


    1. Few and far between. I suppose it part of being an adult and not impulse driven. Slow down, appreciate and see the crack open wider for light to get in… I think Leonard Cohen sings of this.
