Mimi McComb, owner of Java Jacks Coffee House in Tappahannock, VA has commented several times that I had painted many locations in and around Tappahannock and asked me when I was going to do Java Jacks.
I�ve taken pictures there a few times and did some sketches, but couldn�t come up with the �right� composition. I wanted something to really capture the atmosphere in Java Jacks; its warm and cozy. You can still get the �big city� coffees, lattes, mochaccinos, etc, but at Java Jacks you want to slow down and enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee.
I posted on my Facebook page a request to come up with the goofiest coffee drink name my friends could think of. Melissa Filtz of Filtz Glass, came up with the winning name.
Yesterday I took the painting to show Mimi. While we chatted with another artist, Mimi again gave me some good-natured teasing that I hadn�t yet painted Java Jacks. The timing was perfect � as soon as she started I said, �Woman, you have no patience whatsoever!� and showed her the painting. Mimi�s reaction was priceless! Her jaw dropped and she exclaimed, �WELL SHUT MY MOUTH!�
