Ha! Walking through a thrift shop today I spied this mug, and couldn't resist giving it a shot.
I feel like it looks like my painting 101 still life....but I painted it much faster than I did when in my first painting class! Something that is funny about painting; it seems that no matter how long and hard you work you can never escape your hand. Some artists try to find a 'style', but really its already there when you start, and by experience you learn to push certain aspects, while suppressing others.
