“Espresso Yourself” Ahhh…java!  I love it!  In April I am scheduled to do an art show at our local coffee shop.  Already I am building an inventory of paintings about “my drug of choice."  I set up this still life outside in the sun.  I love the natural lighting of the sun, although I do have a fantastic “light box” (patterned after Carol Marine’s design) that my husband built for me.  I use it inside my studio when the weather doesn’t permit me to paint outside.

I once took a workshop from a fantastic painter, Qiang-Huang, and he said, “the subject matter of every painting is the same…it is LIGHT”
