Bird Rock resident and professional artist, Richard Warner, has an oil painting on display in Bird Rock's Starbucks. If the scene looks familiar it's because the subjects are sipping coffee and visiting in front of the same Starbucks on 5604 La Jolla Blvd. I contacted Richard to find out what inspired the painting and he revealed it involves his wife's daily Starbuck visit. On her way to work she frequently ran into "the boys". He became curious about "the boys", so one morning he went down to Starbucks to see her extended family for himself. The painting shows their typical morning grouping. He added, "capturing everyday experiences is very interesting to me, as those moments are the ones that we will treasure with fond memories."
