6 x 6 oil on canvas SOLD
I have a feeling ceramics are going to be my new "thing".
Every time I paint them I fall in love with the way the light
hits so strongly on the handles. Just the handles.
I guess it's been coming on for a while because when I
opened the cabinet where I keep still life props, I noticed
it was chocked full of cups! Why haven't I noticed that before?
Evidently, I have been picking up a cup here and a cup there
whenever I see them and then stick them away with the
thought of painting them one day. Now, as if by magic, I find
I have a ton of cups! It's funny how we do things subconsciously
and then for whatever reason one day we see the accumulation
of the little things our mind cooks up.
This green one is painted on my favorite tea towel. It is sure
to turn up again and again as I bring out the cups.
