These are the latest in my series of teacups. I have been on to other things and have forgotten about posting! The cup on top is from the collection of my friend Delores who loves to set a beautiful table and uses her good dishes when we have dinner at her house. The lower cup was part of my Mom's collection and now belongs to my daughter Paula. The silver spoon is Rosepoint, and a piece from my Grandmother's silverware set. Painting the spoon was a challenge in foreshortening!!

These two new teacup paintings are part of the current show at the Twin Falls Center for the Arts. I have nine teacup pieces in the Idaho Watercolor Society regional show that is on display at The Center. These two cups are named after two friends that I have known for as long as I have lived in Idaho - 35 years - a lifetime! The Ann cup is from Ann's mother Winnie, I believe, and I was fortunate that Ann sent me a picture since she moved before I could photograph her cups. The Janet cup came from Victoria and is a memento of her trip to Canada. I have had a lot of fun visiting friends and taking pictures of their teacup collections and hearing the teacup stories. The bond to the past is alive and well!

Wood River Aspens!
Ok people! It is time again for Art & Soul! Come see my painting at Randy Hansen Automotive in Twin Falls. (on Pole Line Road) If you haven't heard about Art & Soul, it is a community wide art show beginning on Friday, April 18 and ending on May 3. Art lovers and the people they drag along are invited to go by local businesses to view original art pieces and then vote for favorites. My entry is number 4-043. You can pick up a brochure/map at Twin Falls Center for the Arts or stop in and get one at one of the businesses displaying art. Look around town for the colorful flags and stop by to see what it is all about. It is a fun way to spend an afternoon! And then vote for your favorites. Did I mention that my number is 4-043. Prizes are big...$32,000 in all. That's walkin' around money! Your local artists will appreciate your votes!

My own legacy china cups sit on a display shelf while I pick a hearty mug to brew lemon ginger tea to enjoy while painting in the afternoon. No worries about knocking over the cup while flinging a brush. I just have to place it so that I don't dip my brush and color the tea!
