The Imperial at Washburn Imports

Shortly after getting separated back in 2016, I went to The Imperial at Washburn Imports (1800 N Orange Ave Orlando, FL 32804) to meet a friend and discuss the lengthy and endless process  of trying to start over.  Washburn is an antiques shop in Ivanhoe Village that also sports a vintage bar. I have been to a few literary event here and I always order a different wine whenever I go here.  On this  night I ordered a Hercula Monastrell 2010, which I noted on the sketch. The wine producer is Bodegas Castano, from the Yecla County Heirarchy in Murcai Spain. It was a red rich intense wine which I would certainly drink again. 
The person I was meeting was late, so I started to dash off this sketch. I am so used to going to venues on my own, that I don't know how to be a truly social creature. Hopefully in time I will find the right balance between work and play.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
