Coffee Drawings: Big Ideas

IMG_4587IMG_4592vineyardpieces (9 of 18)

So, these coffee drawings are my leaning toward a magical Adult Art Camp experience at a gorgeous vineyard in Eastern Washington. The plans are in the very beginning stages and Daylight Savings Time is messing me up really good. Thus, I will write about that more later. Anyway, here are a few pictures. The top is my coffee drawings from the vineyard on my wall of inspiration, the middle, is my painting, in progress, based on these images, and the bottom images, is the vineyard itself.

I wish I had written this better, but there is always tomorrow. 🙂

Coffee Drawings: Drawing (more) Coffee

IMG_4547IMG_4544

At least, it’s a sweet little pink coffee cup from my Facebook friend with a collection of cute coffee cups. I drew this cup three times today at First Cup Coffeehouse in Portland, and I must say, I am ok posting this last version here, however, I am going to get more practice. I drink so much coffee, I should become an expert at drawing the cups, right?

Well, thanks to a Facebook friend, I ended up drawing today, even though I said I wasn’t going to. So, thanks Facebook Friend for posting your beautiful coffee cup this morning. 🙂

Shrinky Dink Art Drives Me CRAZY!

But it was worth it! After about 10 completely failed attempts, I finally got the hang of cooking this plastic menace! And figured out enough to do a little art project with colored pencils and sharpies. It’s not quite like I saw on Pinterest, but I am happy enough now to turn off the oven and forget the whole thing. For now…hahahaha.

Also, please apologize to your loved ones, because I know you will be sucked into Pinterest after reading this. 🙂
