Cups, Cups, & More Cups

 I have a collection of things (lots and lots of things) I have purchased from various places like Goodwill. I use these things to make still life compositions for drawing/painting. In this collection are about 10-12 cups. No rhyme or reason as to why I bought them. If they caught my eye, I bought them. A couple of years ago, I painted two of my cups for a group show for Bakersfield Art Association. It was to be hung in a coffee shop so cups of coffee were prevalent. I decided I want to hang this piece in my kitchen. I decided I want four small "cup" pieces to hang with the first one. Here is the original "Coffee With Cream" with the four new pieces. The original piece is probably 12x16 inches. The new ones are 5x7 inches. I'm not sure if they will be framed as 5x7 or 8x10.

Private ATC Trade

My friend T and I are doing a private trade.  For April it was "Something From a Farm" and for May, "Flowers".  I used a photo from the   WDE on Wetcanvas for the lamb and a photo posted to Wetcanvas by T for the Black-Eyed Cone Flower.
