Returning Home...

Fortunately for me, I had stipulated originally that if for any reason Starbucks no longer wanted the painting they commissioned, it would revert back to me. (Sometimes I am amazed at my good thinking!)

Here I am picking up the Starbucks painting, headed home where I hope it fits in my studio! I had to rent a uHaul truck since the painting is so big.

About 13 years ago Starbucks commissioned a painting from a local artist for their newest store in Willow Glen. That artist was me! The painting reflected the community, the uniqueness of the neighborhood and was 7'x9'.

Years later they commissioned from me 4 additional smaller paintings (2'x2') depicting the Mission statement key points of their Baristas.

The store was remodeled recently and afterwards, the large painting they commissioned from me no longer physically fit on the wall. A very sad day.
