A Walk Through The Kitchen

A Walk Through The Kitchen
I walk into the kitchen and the first thing I think of is the warmth of my first cup of Joe. I reach in the cabinet among the cups of yellow, gold, red, green and blue. I pick the yellow one of course my favorite. I got it years ago from my daughter. It has missed disaster several times. As I sit drinking my coffee I notice the old jar. A jar also dear to me, my mom used to can fruit and she gave me this one. As I start to go about my daily routine I grab an apple ,red and delicious and think about the sweetness of its ware. Another beautiful day started by A Walk Through the Kitchen.

Mornin' Angie,
Lovely story and painting, too. Those first moments of the day can make it or break it. Sounds like this one was positive for you.

I love this painting and your description. I have so many things that I paint that have been given me by my mother....some my grandmothers...including fruit jars. Thanks for sharing.

I love your kitchen series and this is my favorite. I don't have a lot of clutter, but I have a hard time getting rid of things such as these as well. Items aren't clutter if you USE them and such powerful memories are attached. Enjoy your yellow mug and I hope it escapes future disasters as well. :)

I really like this Angela. The simplicity of the 3 items, and your color palette is so comforting. And I love your story of the morning kitchen walk. Thanks for sharing it!
