Misty Mountains With My Tea: Daily Art Practice
One of my favorite things about living in the mountains, is the view. This picture was taken while I was driving (very carefully). This is the bypass that goes behind our house and our town is in the valley, which is covered in mist. No matter how many times I see it, it still makes me catch my breath. God’s creation is stunning, and I never want to go back to the suburbs!
Daily Art Practice
I have been taking a break from painting shopfronts but I still have a few to share. One of this year’s goals is to complete a book of 88 shopfronts and I have 60 completed so far. There are 28 left to finish so it will be close. Hopefully, I will get my “shopfront mojo” back soon.
Here is another shopfront from our little town, The Square Cafe and Bakery. My husband and I have eaten here, and we had a delicious pulled pork sandwich. This building has a lot of tile work on the exterior, so I just suggested it with color. I struggled with the white lettering on the sign as I am not great at writing with a small paint brush. If only I could find an extra fine point white pen that works over paint.
The second building from our town is East End Coffee. It is a new coffee shop that has done well in our town. They opened up a second location in a nearby town. I don’t drink coffee so I rarely visit but they support local artisans by selling their art, so I enjoy going in just to browse.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Yogi Stomach Ease. I drink this frequently for my digestive issues but sometimes I enjoy it just because I like the taste.
Happy Tea Day,
