The Pleasure Of A Well-made Thing
Beverley Harper Tinsley
Painting - Pastel On Paper
This is my first painting in pastel! The original is available as attractively matted and framed. For photos and dimensions of framed work, please contact the artist.
Sometimes I'm sufficiently drawn to a subject that painting it once simply won't be enough. There is plenty of satisfaction to be had from exploring how a different day, mood or technique can affect the interpretation and final results of a painting. In this case, the delightful hot beverage in the sexy orange, European cup just keeps calling me back for more.
This was a most delicious cup of malted hot chocolate, served outside on a rainy day at the Sunflower Cafe, but it could have been any one of a number of delicious hot beverages I have savored in my life. Cafe au lait, latte, cappuccino, machiatto, hot chocolate, drinking chocolate, sipping chocolate, cider, tea, coffee with cream......

Everything about this drink was enjoyable, as I partook after a short hike. The light was beautiful and I loved the bright orange cup and the glowing whipped cream, and my companionship. To me, a hot beverage served in a beautiful mug is a hand-warming, heart-warming and sometimes almost sacred experience, whether enjoyed in Europe, California, a favorite cafe or my own comfortable kitchen. Give me a good book, too, and I can't ask for more. Life is grand!
