Morning Coffee with Lilacs, 8 x 8 inches
Are you familiar with the blog, Marley and Lockyer? It’s run by a lovely Aussie who creates beautiful ceramic pieces and also shares some of the most inspiring photos of living the good life. In fact, this painting was inspired by her blog post from April 27th.
The photo of morning coffee with a French press got me thinking about how would I capture this morning ritual… with it being springtime, I imagined having my morning cuppa with a bouquet of fragrant lilacs and enjoying a peaceful moment before the day gets going.
So my friends, on this bright Monday morning, I hope your week has started off well with a zen moment and a bit of the season brought indoors.
This is a painting from my Bountiful Observations series, and in my desire to preserve this series, I realize I need to slow down from creating a completed painting every week, so going forward, I will post one new painting on the first Monday of each month. And as with all paintings from this series, 25% of the net proceeds of each sale is donated to the American Horticultural Society.
