“Blue and Yellow Cup” ©Jill Rosoff 2009, 5″ x 8 1/2″, SOLD
This is the newest addition to my series of paintings of coffee cups. There is something quiet and peaceful about sitting with my coffee in the morning, waking up, sun shining in on the table, sorting out my thoughts, planning the day. My friend Paula did an etching of a coffee cup and spoon that I saw years ago at her house, which stuck with me ever since, so along with my morning coffee fix, she and her print are is as much an inspiration for these paintings. This one also became a color homage to the kitchen at Monet’s house in Giverny.
