thirty two. Sperlin; co-owner of the freakin’ coffee shop

Sperlin, acrylic on panel, 13 3/4" x 13 3/4"

The freakin’ coffee shop not only has great coffee; they have reinvented the whole concept and made themselves into an arts and culture hub in the community.  I recently had the opportunity to speak with Sperlin at a costume party and was so struck by his awesome garb that I just asked him if I could do his portrait.  He kindly posed for me on the spot as I whipped out my phone and snapped a photo.

Check out the website and learn about the awesomeness of my own home town:

This is portrait 32 of 100.  Previous portraits can be seen here, or learn more about this project.

    Scott!!! This is amazing!!! Why isn’t your work in galleries?! Your talent is beyond incredible. Take a bow, dear sir.

  5. Whoa! This one’s so good I hadda go make myself a cuppa coffee so I could make viewing it a total experience… : )

    Great work, Scott. I love coffeehouses, and the FC sounds like a very cool place. Have you ever performed at one of their open mic’s? Wouldn’t surprise me. Again, lovely work!

      Ah, the caffiene… thanks Mark! I’m glad to hear it being viewed the same way it was made. No open mic’s for me- I’m actually kind of shy in person (thus the descriptor ‘closet extrovert’) ha ha
