My husband found this hand-painted rose coffee mug in a little gift shop in Salem. He bought it for me, thinking I might like to paint it. It's a cute little thing, but I was a tad apprehensive about using it in a painting. It combines the two elements that strike mortal fear and terror in my heart - ellipses and roses! Yikes! Nevertheless, it was a kind thing for him to do, so tonight I got a grip and painted the thing.
I added the doughnuts to go with the coffee cup...and since it would have been a shame to throw them out, my husband and I ate them after I finished the painting. I suppose it's time to find some healthier food choices as painting subjects.
