Isnt it funny how you can be thrilled with some parts of a painting and not at all with others? the teabag, for instance, I love. The teacup.... well, this particular teacup is always a bear to paint, so it was good practice. I believe it will work next time :)
PS- is anyone out there on facebook and in the mood to play a game of scrabble with me? Im not terribly good, but do love it....
