My Scottish Teacup with Coffee

Here is a Daily Painting I did to refresh my eye. I am having difficulties with a larger painting of one of my favorite models reading, so to refocus on a different project for a while does me good, especially when I’m painting from life instead of a photograph. Again, the pleasant associations of china and tea lift my spirits. Afterward I go out to walk around the Pendarvis Arboretum here in Mineral Point, taking our dogs, Saxon (Yellow Lab) and Pippin (Pug) for a romp. Mineral Point is a lovely old town originally settled by Cornish Miners and built of the local limestone. It seams perfect to come back for hot, Yorkshire Tea and a tea biscuit from the local grocer’s. 5×7 on canvas, Sold
