I Painted Two Men in Deep Conversation at Epoch

Was it business or personal?

Was it business or personal?

The tattooed man was there earlier, sitting outside. He had a brief conversation with the baristra, Ben.  The man on the right showed up about fifteen minutes later, and they came inside and sat opposite each other. I could only hear “she blah-blah-blah” running through their conversastion.

It is difficult to capture two people who aren’t posing for you – you don’t know when they will leave, and the person that you mass in first gets more attention, with the second subject looking like an after-thought. I apologize for the proportion differences, but the likenesses are fairly accurate.

These days, it is difficult to find people in deep conversation anywhere without their laptops or phones, so I was so happy to be at Epoch at the right time. Thank you, Epoch, for allowing to paint.

    I really like the premise of your blog. I’ve been enjoying your painted glimpses of life in our coffee shops for several months now. You capture the intensity of the conversation nicely in this one.

      Hello, Caio.

      I see that you are from Brazil.
      I can’t paint unless I feel that I have little time. God made a moth of a person when he made me.

      Thank you,
