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.
