I've never tried to paint this teacup before- always been intimidated by it! Starting out with a close up sort of sketch is usually a good strategy for me :)
In other news- I've got worms! On the way to take Her Highness to dance class today we stopped and picked up a pound of earthworms, so now I have pets that eat my compost. They live here in the studio now.
I am an artist living and working in Hillsborough, North Carolina, and have been maintaining this blog as a daily painting project since January 1, 2008. Each of the daily paintings and studies posted here is available on Etsy. My larger and more involved works can be rented from me or purchased through Etsy, from the Broomfields Gallery in West Jefferson, North Carolina, from Bull City Art and Frame in Durham, North Carolina, or from me directly by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
