Such a wonderful day this was - sitting on the beach painting with my dear friend, sister in law, amazing artist... I still have a lot of work to do to be comfortable painting plein air style but really enjoyed every minute of it today and look forward to trying it again soon!
"Tea Love" is my painting for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge. This week the challenge was to paint your favorite mug. I bought this mug from a local ceramic artist and it has been my favorite for years. I also put in my favorite vase that I got at the same wonderful place... they both remind me of that sunny spring afternoon my husband and I went for a motorcycle drive up winding Chuckanut Drive that follows the shoreline up to Bellingham. Just before you get to town there is this great store/gallery that features local artists of all types...it is one of my favorite places on earth.
