Cozy Little Tavern – 6″ x 6″ Watercolor

This is the Buford Arms, somewhere in London.  The reference was provided by artbyjune at WetCanvas.   June said that she walks by it on her dog walking route every day, but has never been inside.  It’s undergoing a renovation now.  Wouldn’t you love to see the inside?  I would!

About Marva Collins

“American educator Marva Collins pioneered progressive education for disadvantaged children. She was born in Alabama in 1936 and in her 20’s moved to Chicago, where she founded a school for children who were at risk. After one year, every child tested at least five grades higher. Many public schools have successfully implemented her methods. She has appeared on 60 Minutes and Good Morning America and she recieved the National Humanities Medal from President Bush in 2004. She believes every child is a winner until someone convinces him or her too thoroughly otherwise.”

    Beth, I love this. London is one of my favorite cities and I like all of the neighborhoods and diversity. Your pub looks down right Dickensian!
