Coronation mugs

I did this little one on request and it will be heading overseas in due course. I also used it as a demo piece for an article I’m writing on negative space…….more on that later.
I wish all this cloud would clear off. I’ve a desperate urge to paint Freya’s gorgeous old pram under our apple tree but I need some good light. I also need to get back to Coton Manor to paint their glorious wisteria which is in full bloom. Tomorrow there’s a small window of sunshine amidst the gloom so I will be taking the opportunity. Bags are packed ready to go. Could be a long day so if you don’t hear from me………..

Coronation mugs

It’s been a while since I’ve painted these but what with it being HM The Queen’s 90th birthday, I thought perhaps I would. Seems to be a hive of industry here in preparation for the festivities……balloons, jellies, pass the parcel. No, not really, think it will be a little more refined, but you never know!

It’s well and truly time to put this jubilee to bed, but just before I do, here’s a topical piece that sold at the fair last weekend.  I have a cupboard full of these mugs gathering dust.  Back to earth with a bump today.  Grey skies, housework, laundry and cooking.  Back to painting tomorrow I hope.
