Favorite Things

Leslie Saeta is holding a challenge on her blog to paint 30 paintings in 30 days.  I have decided to join the challenge because I think it will be fun and push me to paint more.  Today is Day 1 of the Challenge and I am committed to producing a small still life painting each day.

Artist Note:

This little cup and books belonged to my father who passed away many years ago.  He loved black coffee and would drink it from this tiny cup.  The books are a couple of his favorites by Kahlil Gibran.


  1. Sweet and I am glad you are taking the challenge. It can be hard to get motivated after the holiday season.I look forward to seeing your daily paintings!

  2. Thanks Denise! I was feeling the holiday slump, trying to get motivated and I think this will help.
