The Art of William Woodward


William Woodward’s mural “A Dance to the Music of Time” for Patty O’s Cafe & Bakery was featured in the WSJ Magazine:

The boxy exterior of the cafe’s building has been updated with crown molding and striped sage-colored awnings. The wild, climbing foliage has been cut down. The once brown facade is now white. O’Connell says he has “softened the old gas station.”

Inside, a stone fireplace anchors the dining room. O’Connell commissioned muralist William Woodward to paint a dream-like scene depicting a joyous barn dance above the bar. “Hopefully after a few drinks, you’ll hear banjo music and feel like you can just enter the mural,” O’Connell says.
