glows, reflections, and shadows

Art Study:  Caregiver Reflections

I am sitting here drinking two drinks. Somehow I made it through the day without drinking much water so I’m making up for it now. So I’m downing the ice cold water and sipping the hot tea. It’s like fire and ice.

I can’t help but notice how cool the amber tea glows in the table. That cup is double walled and keeps the drink hot a long time. Then there’s the lights in the base of all three. The shadows are a grayish translucent, sorta almost purple. I am considering how that would be painted.

If got paid by the hour for my art I’d count this tea time in for sure…like the old lawyer time billing joke:

”I saw you on the street. Thought about your case. Turns out it wasn’t really you. Time:  two tenths of an hour”

This is precious time. The house is quiet.
