Cup

























Still trying to get over my tendency to describe and illustrate. The
quest continues . . .

Cette interprétation est aussi intéressante. Un beau travail dans les bleus.

Dear Lorraine,
your cup is great !
Ce que j'aime le plus est ce passage flou que l'on repère à gauche du bord et sur l'anse... c'est comme si l'objet était baigné d'une telle lumière que ses contours en devenaient impalpables !
Bravo à toi !
A kiss from France.

Great values, brushstrokes, looseness!

Hi Lorraine,
Thanks for your "welcome back" to me on my blog. I know just what you mean about trying not to illustrate and describe...but to suggest. You're so much further along than I am! Great job. I also like the earlier post, "The Set-Up," with it's lost and found edges and the beautiful orange and shadow in the foreground. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and painterly insights on your blog!

This is very nice, Lorraine. I really like your style. Nice soft edges.

Lovely! Just suggested, not literal. Wonderful!

I really like this. I think you commented on my blog to let the viewer complete the painting!~ Totally a wonderful way to STOP at the right time and you did that here. Your work is wonderful and you are too hard on yourself.

jThis is fabulous, it takes my breath away. I read your blog and it could be me writing it. After painting for 50 plus years, it still doesn't change. But oh how I love this peace, and interesting also is your surface. I am also a pastellist and this could get interesting. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Jean Ranstrom
