Shoulder Accent

Shoulder Accent

Drawing the Wednesday night model brought back memories of going to Prayer Meeting at the First Baptist Church every Wednesday night when I was growing up. 
To help pass the time I would draw. 
I still draw on Wednesday nights, but the drawings would probably get me banned from Prayer Meeting. 
I’m totally okay with that.

Mermaid Tavern Sign

New signage for the Mermaid Tavern

Our house is known as the Mermaid Tavern. It’s not a real tavern, at least not one that makes money, but there are similarities: a well stocked bar, food, regular visitors, late night events, an outdoor patio, etc.

The name comes from a 16th century tavern in London, which was located at the corner of Friday Street and Bread Street. A monthly meeting of notable writers, poets, and thinkers, known as The First Friday Club used to meet there on the first Friday of every month. Therefore, the monthly gathering that happens here at our Mermaid Tavern on the first Friday of every month to read a Shakespearean play is also called The First Friday Club.
