morning coffee

9 1/2″ by 7 1/2″ daily pastel painting, unframed
It could be an 8 x 10. I usually exceed my boundaries . . in my paintings that is ;-)

I was having my morning coffee when I came up with the idea for this one.

A friend who saw this painting today reminded of the Carly Simon song “You’re so Vain”. I totally forgot about that song and “the clouds in my coffee. . ” part of the lyrics.

    Even before I read your accompanying text, the phrase “clouds in my coffee, clouds in my coffee” started singing in my head.

    Lovely painting and I like the sky in the cup… like a whole world reflected in there!
