Lending An Ear
11x14 Oil on Canvas
This painting of mugs was relatively easy compared to the others I have been doing lately. It seemed to flow from start to finish. With combination of realism and impressionism, I used both styles to express the craftsmanship of the pottery and simmering warmth of freshly brewed coffee.
This painting represents so many of the things I love… pottery, coffee, warmth, conversations, variety, contrast, energy, color, and simplicity. There will definitely be a sequel. The admiration for the elements and their meaning to me most likely had something to do with its ease of completion.
