Perk Up Your Day...

Good morning! This is my favorite time of day. I love sitting and relaxing with that first cup of coffee while everything is nice and quiet.
Every once in a while I like to throw my customers for a loop and paint something completely different from my usual village scenes. Honestly, it doesn't usually work for me and they flop. But, I just have to test myself. I've always had this fear that I can't paint anything else.
I've always loved a challenge even though this really wasn't all that challenging. But, it was a nice break from all those clean straight edges of buildings. I love the loose and free painting of other artists that I admire and have always longed for the ability to "loosen up" a little.
Yesterday while I was enjoying my morning coffee, I was flipping through an old magazine that I checked out from the library and there was a picture of a flea market table with all these lovely vintage, colorful percolators. Thus the inspiration.....
Perk up you day ladies!!!
