Art, Pastel

It is cruel not to be able to drink as many cups of coffee as one can, like one used to. This was from a photo I took at Greenbriar. An elegant and delicious cup of coffee. The hottest coffee I ever had was made by my mother-in-law. A real treat. We bought a stove top percolator and now we have our own hot and delicious coffee.

Who knew that drawing a simple coffee cup would be so hard. My hands were so messy working with that dark grey and made all the other pastels dirty. I kept using soft paper towels to wipe off the other colors. I’ll have to try this again.
