A gas station in Kensington, San Diego, California.

This is really part of my Sunday Coffee series of paintings, which I’ve been painting over breakfast at various cafes around the city. But the original in this case is watercolor.

Spring Forward at the Kensington Cafe- for sale

Painted over morning coffee on the patio at Starbucks in the San Diego neighborhood of Kensington. It’s a really nice area.

There were great views in all directions, including a stunning Sixties Functional gas station and a Modernist library with trees growing through the architecture. I didn’t paint the library though; I got too discombobulated from Spring Forward. I’ll have to go back.

While I am primarily an oil painter, I love the immediacy of completing a loose pen and ink sketch highlighted with watercolor.

At this point, I think I’m going to have to call this a series: Sunday at Starbucks.
