An ode to morning

Morning with you

Is there anything better than a beautiful morning
when you don't have to go to work?  Especially
if there is someone to share it with, and even
better if that someone is someone you love.

That's the feeling I want in my breakfast
paintings.  Today was a beautiful morning,
fraught with the demands of the day --
meetings, and phone calls, and arrangements
in a long list of chores.  But even so -- just
the thought of a morning languishing in
bed in a gorgeous hotel looking out onto
perhaps Paris, or Rome, or Quebec City,
was enough to lift my spirits, and make me
reach for another cup of coffee.

So this is the result -- I think it's almost finished.
And I hope you like it.

Have a loving-your-morning day.

This is so enticing, I'd call it a break-feast! I can see the two of you dining in perfect mid morning intimacy in the south of France or Florence or even closer to home - Toronto - maybe that's too close.
I'd say it's finished and lay down the brush but you're the one to say.
