This painting was done with the upcoming venue of a show at Cimmaron Books Gallery in mind. (A coffee shop and gallery).
Each morning looking at my grandmother’s china cups bring me such pleasure I had to paint one. The Russian label on the coffee bag came from my sister in New Orleans, from a tin she sent long me ago. I love to save these things and incorporate them into paintings.
Add a very traveled, well-camped espresso maker and – WALA. Handmade stamps, pastels and watercolors, along with India ink are incorporated into this 30″ canvas. I had so much fun with this painting, I think the cool yellow is my new favorite color!
