“At David and Kurt’s”
This piece is part of a series of coffee cup paintings. While at a friend’s house, I’d have them give me a cup of coffee, and take photographs to use for the paintings. The surprising thing that happened is that they ended up being portraits of the people and their environments.
David and Kurt had recently remodeled their historic house in Laguna Beach, and used beautiful grey marble in the kitchen. The soft colors in the marble and cup reflect the calm feeling of their home. The morning light was hitting the counter at a perfect angle to create shadows and reflections which I tried to capture in the painting.
