Cafe Brio in Arcada, California, is one of the special places. I go there whenever I'm in the area, as much for the great pastries and coffee as for the people watching. This painting is based on a number of sketches and photos taken while enjoying the Brio experience. This painting was juried into a 2016 exhibit entitled Urban Romance at the Salmagundi Club in New York. This artwork comes framed.  The painting size without the frame is 18x24 inches.

Getting to Know David

Grounded in traditional realism, David Terry’s oil paintings capture figures and landscapes with remarkable clarity. The muted color palettes and fine brushwork that David employs express the essence of each scene–the mood, the weather, the characters. He is excited about creating paintings that will be future heirlooms, passed down through generations by their owners. “I am passionate about using only materials that will last,” says David. “I expect my paintings to be around 500 years from now. I stay in contact with materials experts and curators to make certain that my methods and materials are the best they can be.”
