Cup O Joe

Cup O' Joe 6" x 6" oil on masonite

Coffee's the best, it keeps me warm in my cold apartment. I found out that 'a cup of joe' was named after Josephus Daniels who was the Secretary of the Navy during WWI. He was known for making changes on the base by adding more chaplains and also making alcohol less available, which made coffee the strongest drink. Coffee became affectionately known as a 'Cup O' Joe.'
