I tried to eliminate as much detail as possible, except for the background which was the fun part of painting this picture. I bought this cup and saucer at an antiques festival last summer and have plans on going again next month. I look for colored glass dishes and plastic plates and cups. So much fun.

The first version of this composition didn't work, so I scraped it off and tried something new. Here's a quote by Marcel Proust, "Art resides not in the superficial appearance of the subject, but at a depth where that appearance matters little." I have to thank my husband for this quote and he reminds me that I have to try to go beyond mere representation and inject something of myself into the painting.
