Watercolors and acrylic on 11 × 9 coffee stained canvas paper

The paper is stained with coffee as well as coffee grounds. The sunflower painted on this mug represents the sunflower on my favorite coffee mug. :) Coffee is a happy thing. :)

Please see my Journal about the process and reasoning for this work. Thank you!

This work was done for a meet up group assignment. It was to paint something happy. I had been in a lingering depression and I wasn’t sure I could paint ‘happy’. So, I went for the steaming hot cup of coffee in my favorite mug, of course! :D

From painting in-home murals, to painting on glass, to painting on a more expected surface-various sized canvases- I’ve found a way to express my moods and thoughts. Photography and its corresponding photo editing is a relatively new, and enjoyable, endeavor.

    a delightful creation Karirose

  • Thank you, Solomon! This piece came about as a result of an art group— the assignment was to paint something happy. I hadn’t painted anything exactly happy in so long I wasn’t sure I could. This was the result. Glad you like it. :)
