I’m enjoying the afterglow. A celebration well-celebrated. Left behind was this painting. It’s not mine to hang onto–its new home will be Crepeville, the restaurant at 3rd and C, adjacent to the corner on which David stood for five years–but for now, I get to appreciate it up close.

Painted by Jeff Andrews who’s got both a talent for painting and an almost mystical gift for observing and capturing a moment. He conveyed perfectly all the essential elements of the corner. Look carefully. But most particularly, the gentleness and openness of David.
