On the easel

Here’s what I’m currently working on. This piece features “The Driftless Cafe” in Viroqua. A superb cafe that specializes in farm to table food.  


The inspiration for this piece comes from two places. Firstly, the building itself is an old stone building. It’s beautiful and down the street from the Fortney Hotel. Another building that has featured in a bunch of my pieces. The second source of inspiration comes from “Cafe terrace at night” by Vincent Van Gogh.


I love this piece by Van Gogh. It makes me want to sit right there and have a drink and watch the world go by. The cafe is still there today and is a popular tourism destination!
