My Cup

                                  My Cup  
                                      Watercolor on acrylic 11 X 8

This painting is number 21 in the series of 30 paintings in 30 days. The background was started months ago waiting for just the right idea to come for a subject.The background is gesso over an old watercolor painting. Putting the curly ques on it reminded me of steam from a cup of hot coffee or tea. Cups always remind me of the Psalm verse that I put on the painting. I used gold background to emphasize the value of God's word. Sometimes that's how a painting is conceived, one thing leads to another. I call it intuitive painting. 


  1. You are being so productive!!! Love the verse with your cup.

  2. Hi. I love this painting. The style appeals to me very much. I'm just learning to paint, and I'm wondering if there is a name for the technique used to apply the soft overlay of graphic design. I would like to Google it and find out more.

    1. Susan, I tried to send you an e mail to explain the technique I used but your click back on your blog didn't work. I don't think there is a name for the technique. Send me an e mail address and I will get back to you.
