Night Cafe

After 2 years, 5 months and 12 days, Night Cafe is open

We name it after a picture by a Dutch guy who cut off his ear.

Right now, there's not a lot in Night Cafe except for some chairs, and 10 strange questions ...

It is one version of our Cafe, Heike.

May I serve you a cuppa? Or a handful of stars?

Hopper's coffee is the perfect companion to a good read of On the Road

What about you Che? The usual?

Heike, I have been meaning to ask you more about this drawing you posted in the "Own Art" thread ...

You had mentioned that you did it in 2000. Does the forest still look the same nowadays? Do you still have the drawing with you? It's really one of my favourites.

sorry Bonita, I was kinda distracted by RM and celebrations last week. Hehe. We didnt have that for 4 years, it needed to be celebrated!

Well, thats quite a long time now that I drew that. Its a piece of forest in the german mountains called "Harz". I havnt been there since though. Maybe its still the same or it may be changed or destroyed by "Kyrill", the heavy storm this February. Ive got no idea. I framed the drawing and put it on my shelf at home in Weimar, together with the other one and an oil painting I havnt shown you here yet .

Im happy you like it!!!

I've been so pre-occupied with idiots and the idiotic things they do, I never even saw this. I need to get out more.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

Merely looking at art just isn't enough for some people.

A woman in Avignon, France was so infatuated with one of Cy Twombly's paintings, that she kissed it. Her lipstick left an imprint of her lips on the all white painting in the Collection Lambert, causing her to be arrested on vandalism charges.

Sometimes art lovers take their love a little too far.

Pardon me for my absence. I've been *away* with the Argentina NT during Copa America and the U20 World Cup But I'm back for a while and so good to see you here, Heike, Heather, Boyo!

I would very much like to see a photo of the painting, Heike, if that's at all possible. In fact, if I have a substanital salary raise, I would like to have one of the drawings in my collection In the interim, I can only work hard and dream on.

You should! We make the best White Russian outside of that SF teahouse on Geary Blvd.

i fear I cant serve you with a photo. Even though I took one ages ago and that was the base for the drawing, I cant find it anymore. Sorry.

i still found a pic in the net that shouldnt be far from the place of the drawing if i remember right.



LOL you think they are worth so much?

I'm afraid my sense of value is very different from those quoted in the Wall Street Journal.

I look at the pair of drawings again just now -- they reflect your sensibility because the lines, composition, perspective are uniquely your own ... (I would say the same thing even if you have copied from a book The years of training has somehow conditioned me to spot the nuances!) ... and to me that is value.

Besides something tells me you would not really want to part with them. Keep up the good work, Heike, whether it's drawings, paintings or photography.
