'like it'?... no, more like necessary for my existence :)

great job, that lettering had to be a pain in the butt!

Virginia Floyd said...

I like it, but I can't drink a lot of it like I used to. Too many cups made my hands shake. So I switched to tea.

Love it and miss my "double double". No Tim's in Texas, sadly.

Ray said...

Aaaah,

And thanks for having the sipping lid open so we could enjoy the aroma along with the visual flavour. And my natural reflexes tell me not to pick it up without the sleeve around it. So, three senses and all for what, only a dollar and ten.

Marian Fortunati said...

And amazing what they'll pay for it too!

Hi Starr, yep - the lettering was a bit of a pain but the most difficult part was the lid. Yes, there are many mornings (and late afternoons) where I am thanking the stars for caffeine : )

BUT Virginia, I am getting the same way! Only one cup a day for me, and then I have to switch to tea or cocoa for something hot.

Shari, if I could mail you a double double I would ; )

And Marian, Timmy's is actually pretty cheap (see Ray's comment...lol)

Thanks!

Janice said...

My torment!!! No Tims in Colorado!!!!! - Love the painting!

Mary Anne Cary said...

I like the colors in this Kim, they work well. Love that yellow background. (Can't say I love the coffee, I will have to try it. We do have a TH here)

Catherine Jeffrey said...

The quintessential Canadian still life. I love it! Do another with a doughnut in the scene! Really love your choice of background colors as well.

Celeste Bergin said...

I'd have an IV of the stuff if I could. Nice painting!

sharisafari said...

Oh! If you make another painting with a doughnut, my vote is for a maple dip! (and now I am hungry)

Sandra said...

I never drink it at home - it doesn't seem to taste the same. But, I do love a nice cafe-latte when I'm out and about! You make the simplest subjects such a joy!

Crystal Cook said...

You are a rock star of the simple subjects!! i love to see everything you paint Kim, you're blog is a joy. If I could I would wallpaper my home with your lovely work. :)

But I am not a coffee fan. Hot Chocolate on the other hand, we go way back. :)

Kim said...

Ah, thanks guys! I've been feeling a bit sick this weekend so haven't done any painting but I'll get back to it tomorrow.

I can hardly wait to "roll up the rim" again!

Great painting- perfect colouring!
