This painting was done for my Girls Just Wanna Paint Challenge this month. The topic? "Ritual". There were so MANY I wanted to paint - girlfriends walking the beach, nail polish and cottonballs, a Rosary, a pug in the lap of someone (ahem) meditating.... But when I found these green cups and saucers at a friend's cottage.... I was hooked. Then I had to go BUY a newspaper - first time in a long time - and I loved it. Reading the newspaper was a habit for years and years. The Boston Globe in the morning, the Patriot Ledger in the afternoon. I read ENTIRE articles, not just headlines. I read different points of view. I read ads. Classifieds. OK, Obituaries. Now... I never know who's alive or dead. I guess that might sound wrong.... but I"m not going to get online and LOOK UP Obituaries just in case someone I know might have died. But I digress.
No, in case you are wondering, and I think maybe you are, I never ever sat with a donut on a plate and a coffee cup and read the newspaper. That would be 'wasting' a plate, don't you think?
Anyway, check out the other very cool responses to the "Ritual" Challenge HERE. :)
And have a great Labor Day - and a rest from your labors...Pin It
