This painting started with the idea of changing an old painting of an coffee cup I did not particularly care for and making something new. I had recently watched a TV show on pottery and was inspired to make my own vase through paint. I also experimented with adding cold wax to the paint while smudging background color across the canvas with a rag, created a rustic feel.
