Review and renew

Coffee at the gallery
Watercolour on
watercolour paper
9 x 12 inches

I found this watercolour still life in my files. I liked it as it
was, but it needed some work. It is always a treat when
you find older work, and can improve it. The eye glasses 
were super dull, and the hand needed a bit more definition.

The painting brought back memories of going for coffee in 
the member's lounge at the Art Gallery of Ontario. I miss 
those days. Steven and I used to love spending time there.

Have a loving your life day.

Beautiful and slightly wonky gives the painting so much movement as though you had just put down the cup. 😍

Thank you Evelyn,

Probably true. And it's a few years ago. I remember when those long,
thin mugs came out -- I wasn't, and am not crazy about them, so that is
probably part of why it looks awkward. Lol.
