I painted this coffee cup recently, in remembrance of a collection of these cups that my grandma had. I think she got them as "gas station giveaways". Gas stations used to give dishware away to their customers as a promotional item. They gave away depression glass, carnival glass, jadeite, and melamine-type dishware. Boy, have things changed!!! When I look at this, I smell coffee.

Twice in the past, I've painted a series of birds for customers. This baby bird reminded me of how much fun that was. I wish I had kept this one. I'm thinking I will work on a series of "Baby Birds" --- that would be great fun! I'll start tomorrow!
