Artist's Description

So here it is! They’ve finally made it – the perfect half a cup! How many times have you said it, “Just half a cup, please.” Half a cup of coffee, or chocolate, or maybe tea, or perhaps even cocoa! So here is: that half cup, sized perfectly. That’s right: “Half a Cup Please” has never had more meaning. Pure genius! Split down the middle and ready to be served. The perfect size cup to hold just the perfect amount.
………..
This painting began as an acrylic artwork on canvas – impasto – which means the colors were added by palette knife, one layer at a time. Each layer must dry before adding another layer, even if it is the same color. This style of painting adds depth and dimension. Once this dried, the image was submitted to a computer program where the colors were tweaked, smoothed and blended a bit more, and brightened. The white adds highlights, much like sunlight streaming in through the window and lightly touching a morning cup of coffee. The artist’s signature was added by hand.

This piece is great fun and matches most color motifs. It is bright and happy and would look terrific in almost any room of the house: kitchen, dining room, living room, den. It would also be a wonderful choice for the walls of a restaurant, cafe, bistro, or diner. Passersby are sure to smile when they quip out the title “HALF a Cup” and realize that the cup has been cut in half vertically rather than horizontally – a witty twist to be sure! The colors are warm and the message is inviting. Have you had YOUR half a cup today? It’s calling your name…
