Cahuenga General Store

I did this paint study at Cahuenga General Store over the weekend. It's a beautifully designed restaurant/cafe that feels like it was plucked from the old days. From old baskets and pots and pans hanging to the vintage products and pot belly stove. It's a really cool spot that I'd highly suggest checking out if you're in North Hollywood.
