"A Cuple of Cuties" SOLD

“A Cuple of Cuties”
oil, 6 x 6in on canvas panel
$150 unframed
Continuing a bit further with my earlier posting on words–couldn’t resist twisting the couple word into cuple to make it fit my subject (get it?? cuple as in cup as in mug…) Gosh, I am sorry. This is what comes of staying in the studio talking to yourself all day. It seems almost brilliant ’til you see it in cold hard print….
Back to the painting itself–love this cup. Addicted to the blue. Using some of the new radiant colors I learned of from one of my favorite artists, Karin Jurick. Something about blues with some red that just hits the happy-o-meter for me.
And a note to the friends and artists in Lexington, KY area—I just discovered a wonderful wholesale flower shop called, appropriately, ‘The Cutting Garden”. Mellow Ellis, the owner, carries beautiful flowers with lots of personality (as in fresher and more unique varieties) at wholesale prices. You can just walk in the cooler and pick out what you want–a single stem or a whole dozen plus (which I just did—okay, I had to do it, I am working on a still life that I needed fresh roses for—sometimes it is so tough being an artiste’.)
Well, over and out for now. Must get back to the studio. Show date looms large on the horizon. Feeling a bit like Howard Hughes these days…..except I did trim my fingernails last week (just in case you were wondering…)

    Congrats on getting into the Daily Painters!!
    Is it hard to get in, I know I’m not quite ready yet, but maybe after I can get down to your area and take a workshop with you! Love seeing your work, it’s great and inspirational.ReplyCancel

    Love the composition and colors in this one. The blue just pops off the page, as does the edge of the table (shelf). A wonderful blend. Love the play on words too. I wonder if too much time in the studio makes us turn into hermits, or do we have hermit tendencies which allow us to stay in the studio? Must rush, need to get back to my multi shirking!ReplyCancel
