Route 66 News

A lulu of a loo

Emily Priddy, aka Red Fork Hippie, is repainting a bathroom using scenes from Route 66 at the Brews & Bytes coffeehouse in downtown Sapulpa, Okla.

The Sapulpa Daily Herald published a story about her ongoing project today:

She told the owners she would paint the walls if the Reed’s could pay for her talent in brewed java.

Combining her two loves, meant that the Reed’s get some economical art and Priddy is able to express herself aesthetically and consume the brewed bean juice while doing so.

A win-win for everyone involved.

“I told Stevia I would work cheap. Art in exchange for coffee. But considering how much coffee I can suck down in the course of an evening I am not sure she is really getting a bargain,” Priddy said with a bit of whimsy.

Her paintings of primarily old classic roadway curiosities/landmarks from the golden age of Route 66, have been rendered somewhat purposely retro to resemble sepia toned photos from days gone by.

Photos of her artwork in the bathroom can be seen here, here, and here. You can see where she started from here. Disclosure: I am married to Emily.

Brews & Bytes can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

    Looking great! Let’s hope they extend the project to more than just a bathroom…that is, if you’re up to it.
    …must consume mass quantities of caffeinated liquid.
