David Park (Boston, 1911-1960) Lydia Drinking Coffee, 1960

Kim Froshin (Atlanta,GA 1961) Valencia Coffee #1, 2000

Since she resides in San Francisco, this is undoubtedly about a coffee place on Valencia Street in the (usually) sunny Mission District. Froshin's pastel colors, mlky coffee in multiple cups, and the violet shadows and surfaces project a mellow and relaxed, perhaps feminine sociability.
