Coffee Break

"Coffee Break"
oil on canvas
10" x 10"

My newest painting - I had a lot of fun painting this one. I've painted donuts before, but the spoon was a new experience for me as well as the overhead view of the coffee cup. I was particularly proud of the subtle cast shadow on the surface of the coffee. Can you see it?

I absolutely love it Sheila. I'm not usually drawn to paintings with such superfine detail and smooth blending but this really grabs me! I think you have put so much of yourself into it and come up with something really special.

Thanks Haidee-Jo! I appreciate your comments - this one was a challenge, but I really enjoyed painting it.
