in her defense she is trying to balance that cup and saucer on her head (those cats eye inks had all but disintegrated so I got busy trying to use what little color was left in them)…

Magpie's Nest T Cup Lady in progress (2)Shakti Parwha Kaur’s tips for living printed on the computer in my favorite font called My Underwood was my final inspiration…

  13. It’s not midnight yet, so there’s bound to be time for one more…right? Of course maybe it IS midnight where you are!! Happy new year!!!

  14. Gotta love this lady balancing the tea cup on her head. It’s great. For a minute I had to check that it wasn’t Tuesday (grin). This is beautiful and by my calculations you have about five hours before midnight, so you could get one final entry to AJJ if you hurry. But hurry is not in your nature because you prefer quality over quantity.

    Having said that, I want to once more wish you a wonderful New Year and our continued friendship across the electronic miles.

  15. What a fantastic way for me to start 2016 as I sip my cup of tea.
    That is a rather big cupa on that sweet lady’s head! I do hope whatever is in it is not hot. Your sketching is really good – she does look like she is concentrating on keeping that cup on her head. Quite serious she is. At first I thought she was British and going to one of the Queen’s Garden Parties. You just gotta love their hats!!

  16. “Have the right container for everything” – that’s pretty good advice, and one I usually follow.
    Where can I get a cup and saucer like that, it’s terrific.
    Your picture and your lady are so eye-catching, I’m wondering, is it a bit different from your “usual” art (if there is such a thing)?(maybe there isn’t).
