Clear Glass Mug (A New Setting)

I listened to a podcast that mentioned using titles that weren't just about helping the artist locate their painting file. I wanted to do that, but all I could come up with was adding my second title in parentheses. This is my last post for 2015. My new year's resolution will be to reach 500 posts (only 20 more) and start painting larger works (in addition to small ones).
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

Rhea's Clear Glass Mug

I spotted this mug at my nephew's house on Thanksgiving and asked to borrow it. I thought it had the perfect look.  But, I forgot to take it that night and returned home without it. My family helped me out and so the little mug took the long journey to my studio. It went from Brooklyn to Virginia and back to New York. What a great family.

Three Stacked Cups Revisited

I feel like my painting is looser and more joyous. It didn't take long. I don't like to admit it, but when I get stuck, I feel kind of down. This all sounds too profound for a daily painter. Truth be told, I have been working on something new, but because it's new it didn't turn out as expected so I had to put it aside. I'm back to what I enjoy and hope to try new things again in the future.

Three Stacked Cups

I haven't posted in a while, but that isn't because I haven't been painting. I have, but I haven't been very pleased with my work. I know other people have been through this. When this happens to me, I tend to keep painting and eventually feel good again.
