CUPS & GLASSES

This series began as a daily painting project (read about it on my blog).

I wanted to establish a more structured painting practice so I decided to start painting my cup of coffee every day.

After the first 30 days, I permitted myself to include cups of tea, glasses of water or wine, etc. Some of these were small breakfast scenes incorporating my plate of biscuits, the jar of jam or perhaps a box of cereal.

Each small painting became a document of my daily routine or sometimes the exceptions to that routine if I was traveling or out for the afternoon.
