The design of this little painting was inspired by taper weights (torn from Martha Stewart Living) and the colors from drinking iced coffee while the A/C's been on the fritz. I love the little iced coffee VIA packs from Starbucks. So handy! One packet makes enough for two of us to have a good size treat after adding a bit more sugar and lots of milk.
Only one little problem... All of sudden, while outlining, the caffeine kicked in. Compared with McDonald's iced coffee, these have WAY more caffeine! (Duh, it's Starbucks.) Shaking hands and permanent pens don't go well together. I thought about waiting for awhile to finish it up, but decided that I'd just plow through quickly. Any squiggly lines would just give it more character, right? Sounded good, only I made myself nervous trying to draw like that. Next time I'll wait until after I finish a painting before partaking of an iced coffee.
