|Colors that called to me|
It was finally time to let be what was, and decide what to make on top of my intuitively created background. At that point, my husband decides to enter the studio and says "That looks like a coffee cup".
Do YOU see it? Of course you do, and so do I.......
You could hear a pin drop, except probably not because I have carpet in there.
I tried to stay loose and intuitive, but what came out? A coffee cup. I wasn't trying to listen to the influence, it just got in there. The first night I was pretty upset about it because I had just ignored my intention for this painting which I had so carefully put in place a week before.
A big giant coffee cup.
In the pics below you will see the changes I went through to get what I wanted out of it. I was inspired by Van Gogh's Starry night as a design on the mug and ended up loving that part. The steam at the top took a few twists and eventually it all came together.
