Plain white mugs through the eyes of an artist....you have turned them into beautiful and fascinating sculpture. Love the reflections and the colours that make up the white

Marvelous, I love it when artists take something mundane like white mugs on a surface and make something really beautiful out of it.

Just common white mugs transformed into special objects by your brush. I really admire this one as white subjects are a favorite of mine. They're a challenge for sure.

True, they're very rarely just 'white' to start with.

Re: Still life with four cups

Thanks, Kay and David.
Yes, reflective "white" surfaces have hardly any whites on them.
These were fun to paint because of the play of the colors around them.
