Hot Coffee

Original Watercolor
from a journal

I painted this enameled coffee cup as part of an entry in a journal. All portraits aren't faces.

If this was a portrait of someone you know, how would you say it expressed that person's personality?


  1. I see a man in work clothes, pausing from installing or repairing something, to have a coffee break. He is standing at a counter since he does not take time to sit. His hands are dirty, cap pushed back on his head, and he is smiling, grateful that someone has taken time and thought to make coffee for him.
    The smallest gesture validates a persons worth.


  2. Oh I would like to wrap MY hands around this cup! So well done and looks smoking hot!
