Dry Creek Cafe

Dry Creek Cafe
11 x 14 in., oil on panel

For those who went to school at UT or grew up in Austin, or have just been here long enough to know about this hidden gem, the Dry Creek Cafe is somewhat of an Austin institution.  It's an old dive bar, with a charming, rickety deck and a view of Lake Austin that isn't exactly unmatched, but it's good. And some would say most importantly, cheap beer.  It's nicely tucked away on Mt. Bonnel Road so unless you already know about it or just stumble upon it, you'd never end up there.  This painting is part tribute, part memoir, part record....

Great alluring feel to this painting, well-handled. Can feel the time and place.
