Something about the vertical lines in the early stages of this painting caught my attention and took me in this colorful direction. The distorted perspective of the coffee cup only adds to the quirkiness of the finished painting, as does the energetic color combination.
I've done a number of coffee paintings and a number of them with beignets, and I don't know exactly how many. Anyway, I'm calling this one #6, though maybe I should give it a more memorable name. "Breakfast at the Cafe" or "Intellectual Stimulus" or "A Cup of Joe and a Plate of Pastries". I dunno.
Thought about naming this one, "Something Something Something," but didn't want to confuse people---I'll leave the grander jokes to professional comedians.
Might have to do more like this. I enjoy the colors and the retro feel. Also: fresh brewed is just the best kind of coffee.
Yet another coffee cup painting. I can't get away from it. I guess it's a somewhat popular motif among the art-loving world, and I'm pretty much on board with it as well.
A cup of coffee. There isn't much to say about this painting. I finished it in two sittings. The first, laying it out; the second, cleaning it up and adding interest. I like coffee.
I enjoy mixed media. I should do this more often. This one is acrylic on newspaper on canvas and features a Beetle Bailey cartoon, among others.
