"Basic Cup"

6"x6" oil on canvas panel
Are you ready for this? Am I ready for this? Here it is... Number One of the new series of.... Coffee Cups!
Heck I did a one hundred painting series before, why not do it again! I struggled with the idea of doing 100 of anything again, but life is short, life is fun, why not... carry on!

This is a basic cup no handle... I have trouble with handles, I'm sure it's a mental problem, but this will help me get over it if I continue with this Coffee Cup Series!

This basic cup is black, white and grey has no handle and came right out of my head! No model. I didn't want to block myself anymore than I already have with just getting this project started. I guess the next decision to make will be when I will have this series finished.

Yes, I learned from doing the Apple Series that if I don't give myself a deadline, the project may never get finished. Hmmm.... how long should this take? Let's be realistic. Okay, I'm going to sleep on it and I will get back to you tomorrow!

See a good deadline already, have a deadline by tomorrow! Oooo, did I just put that in writing? Oooo, yes I did!

-jM, stepping out, once again!

jenettmorie (joke) WELL ALRIGHT!!!!! This will be an exciting new series - you go girl - can't wait to see how this unfolds!! I am 100 percent sure that you will be able to put those handles on very soon. I have 100 percent confidence that by your third cup we will see excellent handles!

Hi JanettMarie

Yes, I know exactly what you mean about handles. When I draw my morning coffee cup i keep turning it and turning it and do all different sketches. Those doggone handles don't LOOK all that complicated, but sheesh. You'll be an expert in no time. I look forward to your new series...you go, girl! : )
Blessings, Joanie
