Mickey's Diner - No. 2

Breakfast at Mickeys | 5"x7" | oil on hardboard

Eggs, toast and a good cup of joe. A great way to start the day. Hopefully you can tell these are cooked just the way I like 'em. Sunny side up. This is a breakfast I ate some time ago at Mickey's Diner.

I think the angle and the tight cropping adds to the visual interest. It creates some nice shapes.

And for some reason, there are few things that are as good looking or feeling as a thick. heavy, curvy diner mug.

Inquire about purchasing


  1. John,
    Love this piece! I can almost taste it!

  2. Hi John,

    Thanks for your comment on the Coffee/Comix. I like your coffee painting, too!

    Thanks also for the ideas... I have been thinking 'series' with these, as they've been going over well. There is a Coffee/Crossword ( ), and I've been asked to to do a Scrabble, which leads me to think Suduko, stock market pages, Monololopy, cribbage.... had not thought of Sports Illustrated, maybe that'd be better with a beer?
