I Heart Coffee, oil on canvas 6 x6
I think my kids think I’m playing a mean joke on them. Why? The donuts I have been painting look great and I’m sure they tasted great the day I bought them but each one has turned rock hard by the time I get around to painting it and when my kids see the still life set up in my studio they just can’t resist picking it and attempting to bite into it!...Ouch... “that’s hard as a rock!” they say... I just giggle and pray... please don’t let them lose a tooth over this joke... how will I ever explain it to the dentist.
Last night my daughter wanted to paint the donut and coffee cup... with very little instruction from me....I think she did an awesome job! It inspired me to paint with the same color palette but just a little different perspective... and while I was contemplating a title... I looked at it with a fresh perspective this morning .... and that’s when it hit me... if you read it counter clockwise and use your imagination a little the spoon looks like an i ... then heart and coffee... all thought it was empty by the time I finished the painting... just image...
