Paintings Showing At Downtown Starbucks
Starbucks In Ashland, OR.
Showing at Starbucks has been a goal of mine since I painted my first “coffee cup” series painting some nine years ago! Finally, I have just the opportunity to do so!
I am pleased to say that I am showing three of my paintings at one of our local Starbucks coffee houses beginning Sunday, January 29th 2017 through April. There are two Starbucks in Ashland and the specific location of the coffee house is at 120 East Main Street, downtown Ashland, OR.
Most importantly, I’d like to extend a special thank you to Wanda Pepin of Art2Business (Artist Services LLC) for coordinating this venue for me.

About the Paintings.
Old School, New School.
Watercolor; $800 Framed; 2015; Inventory #445.
“I am amazed at the growth of personal digital media in our society. Laptops, cell phones, tablets and digital books are so common place. In this painting, I wanted to portray new media next to old media. Two friends are at a coffee shop and they are enjoying a reading break. Old school is reading a traditional hard cover book; new school is reading on her laptop screen. As an echo, I added two different kind of coffee cups: the old school porcelain cup and the new school paper cup.”
The Watercolor Society of Oregon juried accepted Old School, New School into its 2015 Spring Aqueous Media Juried Exhibition where it was awarded fourth place.
Coffee Break Conversations.
Watercolor; $800 Framed; 2015; Inventory #444.
“I had a moment of inspiration while visiting a niece in Athens, GA. To explain, my niece, husband and I were having coffee in a cafe and noticed two young couples came in. The couples sat down to a table and each of them immediately brought out their smart phones. The three of us looked at each in awe and amusement. You see, it seems that the people on the other end of the line were as much a part of the conversation as the people at the table.”
The Watercolor Society of Oregon accepted Coffee Break Conversations into its 2016 Spring Aqueous Media Juried Exhibition.
Cafe, Espresso & Daisy.
Watercolor & Acrylic; $800 Framed; 2008. Inventory #212.
Café, Espresso and Daisy is one of a series of paintings exploring the theme of coffee and an espresso café. The daisy was inspired by a particular arrangement I saw in a Portland, OR, café. The cups, chairs and composition come from my imagination. I tipped the table top up for fun and because of the shape. “Café” is the French spelling for coffee.”
I have had the honor of having Cafe, Espresso and Daisy in two Juried shows: Associated Arts of Ocean Shores 2008, Ocean Shores WA; and Collective Visions Gallery 2009, Bremerton WA.
Thank you and Enjoy!
Most of all, I do hope you will go by the Ashland Starbucks downtown and see these three paintings.
