One of the interesting things about this series coffee cup pieces is the choices I have for the environment the coffee cups are set in. More often than not in my mind its a kitchen or breakfast table, near a window with a view to a garden and sunshine is pouring in.    The visual questions are along the lines of:  will the focus be more on an architectural kind of layout, the color composition, or on the cups, the table surface, the other elements of the painting?  Ultimately the painting’s completion is due to a combination of them, but the journey on each piece is different.

If you can smell the coffee and the hot croissants…ahhh!  so much the better.
