Oil on canvas 100×60 cm

“Good Morning, a black coffee please, scrambled eggs and brown toast”

Would you like some jam and a Kipferl ? They are very good madam, I recommend them

No thank you,

Quite a pity, we have great cakes too, maybe a small slice just to start the day with sweetness?

No thank you.

Well, your choice, but let me tell you miss an opportunity.

Missing opportunities is my specialty…

I see, enjoy Madam “

This dialogue would be a very uncommon one in a Wiener cafe house: usually waiters are not very talkative, not even for selling’s sake- a relatively measured friendliness must be part of the job education.

The painting is inspired by a coffeehouse in Vienna: I love this terribly old fashioned furniture and the slightly decadent atmosphere. Early morning, when all is quiet, those places are meditative: you get a good coffee, people read newspaper, the time extends and all flows with its own rhythm.

In this view the light and the reflections were particularly appealing to me:the way the sunshine enters through the windows and reflects on the marble surface of the tables and the warmth coming from the crystal chandeliers fill the room with a mixture of hope and memories.

It is a oil painting on canvas, 60×100 cm
