I have written about "change" for a lot of months. I see the theme of this blog--"letting it go" a lot like change. Nothing is constant and trying to hold on is not useful. So goes the story behind this painting. The two blue coffee mugs were sitting on the desk where our computer is. I drink tea, so I knew the mugs were not mine. I was annoyed that they were staying there, and I didn't want to remove them. Days went by while I tried to ignore the mugs. Then I saw the nice way the light, mugs, plant, and other junk went together. I decided to do a painting. When I paint from real life, I take out my art supplies to work and put them away until the next time I paint. Well I was well underway on the painting and feeling calm about the mugs. Then one day I planned to paint, the mugs were gone. Someone had put them in the dishwasher. Well, to be able to finish the painting I had to take two clean mugs out of the cabinet and place them on the desk. My resentments were gone, and I found lightness and humor in finishing this painting.
