Thinking about spring brings back two specific memories for me. Firstly, it’s the crocus. These little beauties still pop up in our pastures, and I can actually feel my heart tugging when I see them...
I figure there’s no better time than a Monday morning to bring it up again – yeah… coffee. Coffee art. Not the latte kind (though I wish someone would embellish me an espresso right now!) but oh, a very satisfying blending of two of my favorite things.
Here I am - the first quiet night of 2019. I’ve got my sketchbook and I am brimming with inspiration for the new creative days on the horizon. The coming 365 feel like a big messy pile of blank pages...
My 'Faded Keeper' was the first of two commissioned paintings of the iconic Macoun Elevator (the second being 'Coffee and Crickets', a more historical version).
I drive back through my little hometown almost every week, so it really startled me when I stopped to take my reference photos and I realized the sad condition of the landmark! In my mind, I honestly expected that it wasn't much different than it was when I was on my way to school as a kid all those years ago...
