Close to home My mug Sirkka Jalava

Inspired of other artists paintings of their own tea cups I sketched my morning tea cup or mug. I have had it many, many years and still like it. There is a text Mums mug on it and a girland with red roses.

  3. The delicacy of your painted cup shows it's age and how much it is loved!
    I think it must be time for me to reach into my own cupboard, as I have some favorites as well. Beautifully done, Sirkka!

  7. This is lovely! Have you ever noticed that text in a foreign language always looks exotic, even when it says something simple?
