The Coffee Painter
by Veronica Schreiber
Porn, glitter, and ugly ladies are what Vivian Grimes paints. Crown Royal, Guinness and Canadian Club are what she drinks. Bartenders, drunken losers and her high school janitor who she’s still trying to forget are the men in her life. The Coffee Painter is about an unlucky Canadian artist who is trapped by booze, bad lovers, ugly paintings and violent neighbours.
