Between Shifts


5.5"X7"Marker on paper



Every bar, café, restaurant and bistro has a table close to the kitchen where the staff hang out. Once it would have had an over-full ashtray and a cigarette left smouldering or carefully extinguished to be lit again. Here sits the chef, making a list of supplies needed, planning next week's menu or writing to his mother, who knows?

The Epicurean is a nice place to go at lunchtime with lovely big southern windows flooding the back section with sunlight. At this time of year there is always lots of room for me to sit and draw undisturbed too.
