Coffee Still

I think I'm done this one. I've changed the background to a more greyish blue which I think complements the warm orange tones in the coffee. This painting was an exercise of loosening up a little (something that I do not do nearly enough) and to just enjoy the process of painting without worrying about being overly realistic. Its was lots of fun and... was wonderful to paint something 'warm' during the cool nights we have been having lately.

Speaking of cool nights, I thought I would include some of my snow pictures that I've taken over the last few days. I am sure there will be ample opportunity in the next week or so as there is another large snow storm heading my direction.
