This was drawn from coffee time when I was in the restaurant Chez Robin. Yup I was too lazy to go out for coffee and had it in the studio. Today it is called Chez Robin as I added french vanilla to my drip coffee, no where near as good as a Latte but it helps me to pretend.
My studio is much like a wee tower that over looks our neighborhood and also down the valley to see the gateway to the Amazon. Even with the amazing view I can still feel my age and need to wear my reading glasses more and more and start to feel resentful for having to wear them especially in that wonder hour of coffee deprevation in the morning.
I am no longer a smoker and haven't been for well over 20 years but you still get the same feelings as in this picture at least I used to, much like "Maxine". I just hope that I don 't look like this, I would scare even myself.
This was actually came from a set of pet drawings that I had done also about 20 years ago. Rob found them a little while ago and I thought it would be fun to see how they would play out after all this time. Rob and I were early in our relationship and were trying to think of ways to create money through art. This idea came up after a bottle of wine brainstorming and lots of laughing.
Yeah it is a little silly drawing but from my experience if when you can't see in the morning and you require that first coffee and your are wandering around in a caffeine depressed state you don't always see where your think your slippers are. This was not a slur against puppies or small dogs but the morning and lack of senses in the morning before coffee. I am actually greatly sympathizing with the puppies.
Please don't take offense to the assumed puppy abuse it is totally fiction.
Talk with you later
