A Few of My Favorite Things

This is my submission to this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge. Click the link to read more about the challenge and see all the entries. The challenge was to paint our favorite mug we reach for when we want something hot to drink. Well, I don't drink coffee...but this is my favorite wine mug! Does that count? I decided to include a few of my other favorite things...

Brenda, This is really well done! It is so colorful and vibrant. Great job of making it look 3 dimensional.

All your paintings have such a nice glow. This is a beautiful mug and I like the brushes beside it.

I went to the site with the challenge to see what everyone else came up with. Hands down - yours is my favorite. I'm not just saying that because I like your work in general and I follow your blog. Your painting has a sense of place - perhaps because of the dramatic highlight on the cup. The colors are grounded by the surface the mug sits on. Last but not least - your brushstrokes have movement, expressing, to me, that there is life there. The passing of time is evident in those brushstrokes.. This was a great exercise that allowed the best of your style to come through. Well done! Carolina
