So what's the story behind today's teacup? I am often inspired by stories from the Old West so when I saw this beaten-up little tin teacup, I knew it had stories of old trails to tell. A welcomed cup of tea by a night camp fire after a hard day battling the elements, traversing a brutal and windy terrain.
I painted this little guy with a lot of love thinking of those bygone historical times, particularly important on today's Election Day in The United States.'
I am proud to be an American having gotten my citizenship a few years back, but only after quite some effort to get it. Today reminds me of that. The journey. The trail.
GET OUT AND VOTE!
And have a cup of tea while you are at it.
Cookie on the side. American chocolate chip, all the way.
